QKD - Royal Color Challenge!!!

Hello!!! Welcome to a fantastic Royal Monday!!! Today we were issued a color challenge!!! Blue, White, Grey/Silver! I knew JUST what to make!!!

If you've arrived here 'just because' then WELCOME!!! If you came here from Penny's blog then you are on the right track and if not you'll want to start at the beginning of this awesome hop with us!!!

Today I've made a funky Hanukkah card! I used a long note base of 9 1/4" x 4". It's a great size when you have larger images or paper with a large image to work with.
My base is made out of grey cardstock then stitched with the white/blue designer paper. The paper kind of reminds me of a blueprint!! Super cute!! I stitched that down with a zig zag stitch and then added the right hand panel of silver cardstock matted and straight stitched with it's matching designer paper. The star is the star stamp from the Party Like A Rockstar set.

I stamped it in silver ink and then went over it with silver Stickles.

I then stamped JOY from the Doodled Holiday Words set which is a MUST have for any holiday card!!! So cute...and at only $9.99...it's simply a bargain. It's a FAB set. Very versatile. I stamped it in Brilliance Pigment Ink in sky blue and then heat set it with embossing powder directly onto the DP background. To bring more emphasis to this word I used the silver Stickles to follow the pattern on the DP next to it.
Lastly, I created a HAPPY HANUKKAH banner using the DP and printing sentiment on the free hand banner out on my computer. I backed it with a matching blue cardstock so it would stand out more and stitched around the edges.

I hope you enjoyed my creation today!!! Keep on hoppin' to see what Linda has for us today!!!
