Recipe for all seasons challenges combined

Hi again 2 posts in quick sucession, I got all the housework finished this morning and made some bread too and Andrew still wasn't home from his first day of sixth form so had time to play and do a couple of cards, I think I like this back to school thing though I'm sure all this craft time won't last and there will be loads of housework house jobs and definitely gardening to get in the way but for now craft.

After doing the blog hop at the weekend and finding 2 challenges along the way i decided to have a play and combine the two.

The card style is a joy card something new to me and a fab tutorial by Sarah over here on her blog though I did change the dimensions slightly and the number of layers hope she doesn't mind too much.

The colour scheme was for the other blog challenge I found at Ali's here, it's to use blue ,white and one other colour and keep it clean and simple. The example card is a fab snowman image but as I am still expanding my nellie stamps I don't have any snowy ones yet that would be good in all blue and white so I really had to think hard as to which of my images to use. I came up with Caitlan and my one other colour is dusky pink for her skin. I added some punched daisy flowers and a mix of papers all shades of blue onto some white rib embossed card finished with pale blue buttons and blue ribbon. I haven't added a sentiment as not sure what it will become, a birthday or new baby card or just a hello friend card to make someone smile will have to see what lies around the corner of life but hope neither lady minds me sharing the challenges and approves of my card, and thanks for great inspiration too.

Gorgeous card Julye.
I love this stamp, and I've used it quite a few times now. Loving the colour combo, I do love blue and white. I'm quite sure neither Sarah nor Ali would mind at all,but would be flattered that you took some inspiration from their blogs. I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed the hop, I certainly did! And congratulations on your win (it was you wasn't it?)
Love Elaine xx
