Post it!

A few days ago I got out the materials I wanted to use for a card for Daring cardmakers 'post it!' challenge, but hadn't got round to making the card till now.

The background paper is K & Co from a 6 x 6 paper pad that I've had for years. At one time I used to use quite a lot of the K & Co pads paper, but seem to have neglected them for ages. I tore off the right hand side of the paper because it had a postmark on it which wouldn't have gone with the stamped ones I wanted to use.

I chose a navy blue card blank and stamped the Papermania Utrban stamps with stazon ultramarine, also staining the Tim Holtz tissue tape with this ink pad. The postcard with the lovely picture of the dog is an Express yourself sticker. It originally had a deeper pink little rose in the middle,  but I swapped this for the paler pink because I wanted to dot more of these around the card - these are from a pack of PM satin buds (I carefully took off the green leaves).

Colours are for Love to create 3:  navy, pink and one other colour (creamy beige). The use of navy blue is also for Moxie fab world 'the cure for the winter blues' challenge. And Stampin for the weekend 3 is asking for blue with tones from cream to brown.

This is also for:
