Digital Tuesday Challenge 'Blue, White, + 1'

Hello and welcome to another Digital Tuesday Challenge. This week's challenge is a color combo: Make a card using blue, white, and one other color of your choice. Our sponsor this week is our very own Digital Stamp Oasis and they are giving away 3 digis to one lucky randomly chosen winner.

Now first of all, I'd like to let you all know that I mistakenly read the challenge wrong. I thought the color combo was black, white, and one other color, so if my card looks black to you, instead of a dark navy blue, your probably right. LOL! I have no idea how I made this mistake, probably because of all the stress I am under, but I did a big boo-boo! But I don't think it really matters, cause you still get the idea....right?

For my card, I used a new Digital Stamp Oasis image called 'Happy Hedgie with Flowers'. Isn't he a cutie? I colored him with Copic Markers and I used last week's Mojo 132 sketch. Because there was so much white and black space, I embossed all the different layers with my Cuttlebug to make the card more interesting. Here is a close up so you can see the coloring of the image better.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. Mine didn't go accordingly as planned. Unfortunately I woke up at 5:00 a.m. on Good Friday with a bad case of the Stomach Flu and diarrhea. So I spent the entire day either with my head hanging over the toilet, or my bottom hanging over the toilet, also accompanied by the chills even though it was a beautiful 70 degrees outside and I was wearing a chenille robe and wrapped in a fleece blanket. I had quite the pity party for myself that day. I was so upset because I had looked forward to the holiday weekend for so long; I had so much work to be done and I had so much I had wanted to do. It was my first full day off in a week, and I was completely incapable of doing anything. Then, of course the very next day I had to go back to work for 9 hours. Although the worst was over, I still wasn't feeling well enough to be standing on my feet that long, but being the trooper that I am, I did. Yesterday however, was wonderful. We decided to skip the Easter Breakfast because I still didn't have my appetite back, but we did go to church in the morning and I got to wear a brand new Easter dress to church. I know that probably sounds stupid to some of you to hear me be excited about that, but I usually work EVERY Sunday afternoon and I have to leave for work directly after the church service is over, so I have to wear my work clothes to church. It just felt so good yesterday to wear a nice dress and high heels for a change! Anyway, after church we went to our friends new home and just had such a lovely meal and visit. So, in the end, even though I didn't get the weekend I had planned for, we still had a nice Easter Sunday. And, the best part is, my appetite returned just in time for lunch! LOL!
Have a great day! Amy


  1. Glad you're feeling better. It's nasty to be sick, much less on a long weekend.

    Love your card - no matter what the color combo is supposed to be! teehee!

  2. Your card is beautiful Amy. I just love the sketch, the embossed white spaces look gorgeous and I love how you colored the image.
    So sorry you had the stomach flu. Glad you are doing better now, and I am so happy to hear that you had a great Easter.

  3. Love the monochrome Amy, with the coloured image - absolutely superb. Sorry not been blogging a while but a bit under the weather! Liz x

  4. Black, white and red is always a classic combo -- your card is beautiful! I'm sure it would have looked great in blue, too! :)

  5. Aw such an adorable card and gorgeous layout...never mind if the colour is wrong - its still so gorgeous.
    So lovely to hear you are feeling better.
    Hugs Emma x

  6. Amy, this is so pretty! love your coloring, great job!!!
    blessings, Maria

  7. I think this card is adorable even if it isn't blue. I really like the layout you used to show off that cute hedgie.

    Bummer about being sick. I've been unwell the last two days with the creepy crawly skin, aches all over and dizzy spells. Not sure if it's the flu or my Lyme's Disease acting up again. I've had to miss work and I have so much to do. Good thing my boss is understanding.

    So where's the photo of you in your new dress. We all want to see it!
