CTO Design card blue and white

Paper Panther here and I am thrilled to be on the Design Team for Celebrate the Occasion for another term. The challenges this term are even better than before if that is possible and I hope you join Rayna and I in playing with them There are also returning design team members and some very talented new design team members worth checking out. Here is my project this week: The challenge is White and Blue






I used white cardstock for the base of the card and ran it through my sizzix texture boutique purse embosser using the Sizzix Tim Holtz Retro embossing folder.
Instead of making this card grungy, I wanted more of a sweet and shabby look. I used Tim Holtz distress ink in Tumbled Glass to color the white blue and I tore white card stock into 3 circles and then tore little triangles in the the sides, inked and layered it making a flower. I used a blue jewel in the center I then balanced the flower out with two beaded flower brads from K&Company. I used glittered swirls in between the flowers. I left this card blank so I can use it for just about any occasion.
