Monaco Blue

We're coming down to the last few Pantone colors that Jackie has been using on her blog header.  This one is called Monaco Blue; I love all blues, but don't use these darker ones enough, so this was a fun card for me!

Monaco Blue

supplies: white and navy cardstock, Leaf & Floral Background, Navy and Stonewash mid-tone inks,sentiment from Potted Garden, blue pearls

I recently used this lovely flourished background stamp and wanted to play with it one more time before I put it away.  As I've been doing lately, I stamped it in 2 different colors, turning the stamp 180 degrees between stampings.  



ETA: Though there's not a big variety of colors on this card, I'm entering it into the MFW's Handmade Card Week: Color Media Challenge just because I love how it turned out!  Love me my blues!!
