Let The Good Times Roll


After a relatively craft free weekend I had some time to work on a card today.  I decided to play along with the Paper Smooches Sparks challenge. I was inspired by the blues, the white lettering and the clock.  Clearly I've still got puns running through my head after last week!  I'm also going to enter this at the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge.



ETA:  A couple of people have suggested I enter this in the Cure for the Winter Blues challenge at the Moxie Fab World.  I was going to but it says, "design your cards so that navy blue is the star of the show".  I'd say aqua is the star here with navy blue only making a guest appearance.  However, given the number of non-navy blue starring cards that have been entered I'm gonna throw mine in too.


Cardstock:  (White) Gina K, (Island Indigo, Pool Party) SU
Stamps:  (Clock & sentiment from Perpetual Bliss) Paper Smooches
Inks:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko, (Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, Island Indigo, Pool Party) SU
Embossing Powder:  (Seafoam White) Ranger

Gems:  Doodlebug
