Karen Burniston's November Designer Challenge "Red, White or Blue" - Blue card

I'm back again today with my 2nd card for Karen Burniston's Designer Challenge. This time my card is all about blue, thinking about somebody and even missing them.  Elizabeth Craft Designs has just come out with Transparent Double Sided Tape in several different sizes, for today's card I have used 3mm, 6mm & 10mm.

I got the idea from Els to make glittered paper & it's so easy to do!  Simply apply several different sizes of Transparent Double Sided Tape to your cardstock, remove the release sheet & cover with Turquoise Silk Microfine Glitter.  Want to make multi-colored glittered paper?  No problem, simply remove the release sheet from a couple lines then cover with Silk Microfine Glitter, then repeat with other colors until you've covered all lines with glitter.

The sentiment from A Dozen Thoughts was stamped onto a Lucy Label.

Honey the Bear is blue without her bear friend & she's holding a honey pot full of flowers anxiously awaiting her friends arrival.  The sentiment from In My Thoughts was stamped onto a Lucy Label.

Here's a side view of how I attached Honey to the Garden Bench.  I used the arm rest of the Garden Bench & folded it like a box & simply glued it to the back & bottom of the bench.  Doing this allows Honey to sit further forward on the bench & gives even more dimension.  By using the arm rest, I didn't need to measure anything - easy peasy.

Thanks for stopping by today & don't forget to check out the Elizabeth Craft Designs' blog tomorrow for the entire Design Team's cards and even a card & video from Karen.
