I'll Miss You Blue Belle!

This week's Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge is a shout-out to the Close To My Heart Color of the Year, Blue Belle.  This color was announced last September and is about to retire as of August 31st.  It's such a gorgeous color - it makes me sad to see it go! 

The pattern in the squares and rectangles was created with an embossing folder. I inked the inside of the folder with Blue Belle ink, placed my White Daisy paper inside and ran it through my embossing machine. It's a fun technique and you get completely different results on both sides of your paper. 

Here is sketch #432 that inspired my card. 

I found this sketch to be a little more challenging that some. But that could just be me having a creative block.  How about giving it a go yourself?  I'd love to see what you come up with. 

Below are the products I used for this card. As I said, Blue Belle is retiring at the end of August so if you love this color be sure to grab some before it's gone!
