Blue with a dash of silver

It's the second ever monthly challenge over on the splodge away blog - the theme this time is silver and blue.  All the details for the challenge can be found HERE

So here is my card entry for the challenge:

I used my splodge mat and splodge away card to create the background using my brayer and an andirondak inkpad in denim.  I stamped the bauble stamp by indigo blu using black versafine, I stamped it again onto a second piece of card and cut the baubles out and rounded them using the end of a pen.  I layered the rounded baubles onto the main image using foam pads.  I them stamped the sentiment which is from papermania/do crafts.  I mounted the card front onto black card and tied some blue ribbon to the right hand side before mounting it onto my card blank.  Finally I added some quickie glue and glamour dust to the snowflakes and baubles for that little touch of Christmassy bling!
So there you go, I hope you like it - it certainly brightened up my day what with all this rain!
Thanks for looking,
