Blue Stash

Hello readers,

Today I am entering one card in three challenges. I got the inspiration for this card from my husband who just shaved his beard down to very short beard.  I feel so sorry for him but at the same time he looks sooooo much better...

The cards ombre effect with shades of blue were inspired by the Colour Me: Monochromatic (CMCC#57)  color challenge. By its nature blue is a very relaxing color and what better challenge to enter then CardZ 4 Guys #56 Kick back and Relax and the topping on the cake is the CAS(E) this sketch (CTS#109) !! I took this sketch quite literally, which I usually don't do with sketch challenges. In this case it had to be done.. Well here it is!! I hope you like it..  
Didn't have a stamp for 'that stash' so I
ran it through the printer on sticker paper by Avery

Card size: 4.25" x 5"

Close up of the 'stash' and the gradation of the word 'relax'

Figure ground reversal which worked out very well!

These are the amazing challenges I am entering. Please check them out you will not be disappointed!!

I have a sick 9 year old reading quietly so I should go and be mom.. I  hope everyone has a great day!!

All the best,
