This week we're just letting someone who is feeling a bit blue or perhaps unwell know that we're thinking of them. I've taken the theme literally & gone for all kinds of shades of blue with punched layers from the various 12 x 12 papers using the Crafty Edger & Tag border. I've sliced the front of the card blank diagonally & rejoined the right hand side with a fold of card. Starting at the top of the card I've layered all the different strips overlapping to give a frilly, lacy effect. The sentiment has been stamped onto Gingham Blue paper using Versafine & layered onto some dark blue card. This panel has only been attached to the card blank on the left hand side diagonally so that the right front half closes behind it . As you will see I've sliced away the top & bottom corners of the 2 halves of the card respectively to reveal the dark blue spotty London 4 paper inside which provides a contrast. To finish the outside of the card I have added some Liquid Pearls to the border pattern on the stamped panel.

Here's a closer look at the inside of the card
