Today has been hectic.  We are trying to sell our home and the constant cleaning and tidying for showings can be such a hassle.  I'm sure we have all experienced that.  I think in the end it's worth it!

Today's card was made using the color challenge over at Our Creative Corner.

 I began on some Navy cardstock.  I machine stitched 2 pieces of Belle Bleu.  To that I added a glassine bag, a stamped mat, and all kinds of embellishments.

Thank you for stopping by!



  1. Hello Alyson
    Hose selling is soooo stressful, hope it sells soon for you.
    As your sentiment states...Beautiful.. and this card is very much so. Your Blue is not quite Navy but I guess it is in the same colour family. I love the effect of the two tones, it is happy and has such movement within the design.
    Thank you so very much for joining us at Our Creative Corner this week, we are so pleased to see your work.

  2. Hi Alyson! I really love all the layers you have created on your card, and the little glassine bag in the background works really well adding depth and interest. All those beautiful embellishments clustered together are lovely.

    Thanks for joining in this week at OCC. Glad you got some time out to create something while you are selling your home :)
