CTO Blue and White any occasion

**** 300 follower give away here.

Today's challenge is to create something for any occasion using blue and white.   My photos want to tint this a bit more blue then it really is but I can't seem to figure a way to stop that.

I used Gypsy Wanderings for the shape on the left and Wild Card for the sentiment.  This is NOT the way I envisioned this card at all.  This was a total crafting misfit project.  Let me put it this way, 2 of my teeth are now blue from an unfortunate gel pen experience before using my actual Cricut inks in the Cricut.  I thought this would be quick and simple but it ended up taking more time then anything I have done in recent history.

My Mind's Eye has come out with a pack of all their paisley papers! I love it this background paper is from that.  I am loving that paper stack!

I originally just inked the stuff on but the white was shocking and basically horrid.  So I chalked the white paper some.  In person it isn't so blue but it works :)

I would love to see what you come up with!  Join us at Celebrate the Occasion and show us what you come up with!


  1. Hmmm... So this project WAS the source of the blue teeth, huh??? When I saw your card at CTO, I thought I had discovered the cause!! :) LOL... Well, the ends might justify the means cuz your card turned out to be SUPER cute!! :) You know it's such a sweet treat for me to be able to welcome you to the CTO DT!! YAY you!!

    Thanks so much for sharing your talent at Celebrate The Occasion this week!!

  4. We are our worst critics! I think the card turned out beautiful and you have teeth to match... sorry I just had to :)

  5. I think your card turned out wonderful! I have yet to use pens in my Cricut and I don't know if I want to now if you can get blue teeth!?! :) LOL! Love your card!

  6. Well, i like the card, even if it did not turn out as you had planned. But when I got to the part of the blue teeth, I just fell out laughing. Too bad there was not a video camera running at the time!
