A Blue Monday

Here we are back at Monday again!  After a little weekend rain, the skies have returned to partial blue and I’m sharing a rather blue card with you too!

Today, it’s Prickley Pear Monday again and I decided to use two of the new rubber stamps in Prickley Pear’s online storeThanks to You and Flower Cluster.  I arranged and rearranged this card more times than I can count.  I just couldn’t decide how I wanted to layer things and then, when it came time to add some embellishments, I felt completely stuck!  I finally decided to add some piercing to frame the sentiment a bit and some turquoise embellishments.  It’s no wonder my CAS cards always end up taking me much longer than I originally plan to spend on them!  Ah well, I have fun playing and isn’t that the point of it all anyway?!

Have yourself a very happy Monday!

    Such a very sweet “blue” card, Melissa! I like the subtle effect of the gray mixed in and love the paper pierced corners. The scalloped circle with the flower cluster is wonderful, too!
