Winter smiles

Blue ranks just above pink in colours I don't use very much/not that fond of.  To challenge myself, I thought I would play along with the Cure for the Winter Blues Challenge in the Moxie Fab World, which says to use navy in an innovative way.  This also works for the Hero Arts Flower Challenge this month.  So my cure for the winter blues is a winter smile.  :)  Smiling right now cause the winter snow we got on Sunday was just a skiff and melted right away!  

I don't know if this is innovative way to use navy... just decided to let it speak for itself and then added a little whisper of red (because I can).  No matter what I did with that red floss, it wouldn't stay where I put it so I left it skewed (because I can).  

Hope you enjoy your upcoming weekend.  I know I'm looking forward to it.  Mine is lasting three days so that is another reason to smile. :D
Thanks for stopping by.  Always appreciate it.

  1. I'm loving the blue and white contrast in this card, Glenda. Not to mention the way that flower echos the chevron pattern. Nice job!

  2. This is a lovely way to use navy blue! The chevrons give your background so much texture, but they are still nice and subtle. :)

  3. This is SO striking! Love it! (and you just had to sneak in the red, didn't you? :)

  4. just beautiful...love the chevron pattern on the back and that die cut flower is so amazing...love this card Glenda..

  5. Gorgeous!! I love the navy with white and that flower is amazing!

  6. Glenda... this is so stunning! The white just pops agains the navy background.

  7. Hey Glenda! Thanks for linking this up to the Cure for the Winter Blues Challenge in the Moxie Fab World! I'm so glad you joined in on all the fun! :)
