Something old, something new, something blue...

 Welcome back crafty friends!

There's a fun new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog and the theme is "Pick Three" from this listing...something old, something new, something borrowed and/or something blue. 

There's also an inspiration board...

Here's what I came up with using something old, new and blue!
She STOOD in the storm...
I love how this monochromatic card turned out.  Not at all how I planned, but I am good with the finished design.  Just about everything on this card is old and blue.  The papers, flowers, die cuts and ribbon have been in my stash for years.  The stamp is also older and from a company no longer in business.  The new would be the black ink.  It was a recent purchase  and I'm very happy with it.

I'm reading your list and loving all the oldies. It makes my heart feel good to see them come out to play. Beautiful paper, such a pretty shade of blue.

As I mentioned on Facebook, that sentiment is magnificent and you framed it very well on your card for this challenge. The blue rose background paper is excellent and I love how you added a few more to frame the oval.

I'm such a fan of the monochrome look, and you have NAILED it here. That background patterned paper is so stinkin' pretty, I LOVE it. But the greeting is the star of the show, it's so beautiful. Well, the whole card is!!

Beautiful monochromatic card. The sentiment is wonderful and I like how you embellished around it to make it the focus. Thanks for joining us at Addicted to Stamps and More! Apologies for the late comment.
