Blue Christmas!

Today Tami's challenge for Dapple Designs Color Challenge ~ part 10 was to use only one colour and make a monochromatic card. At first I thought this was going to be really difficult, but while wading through the piles and piles of cardstock and paper on hand, I realized that I have 27 shades of blue, so no problem with this one. Did you know that some shades in the same colour family actually clash? I didn't know that until today! Because blue was my choice, it just cried out for a Christmas card, so here it is.

Cardstock: Bazzill Bling, Night of Navy, Ballet Blue
Stamp: The Stamp Barn
Accessories: Blue Embossing Powder, Creative Impressions Snowflake brads, Offray ribbon
