Dots and Doily - Blue and White

Lots of details and a crisp blue-and-white color scheme.  I like it.  The dark blue edging on the patterned paper (Copic marker, see below for more info) is a small touch, but it makes a big difference in pulling the card together visually. 

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) enchanted evening (dark blue) and stamper's select white.
  • I computer-printed the patterned paper, using white text (periods) on a blue background. 
  • The patterned paper is edged with Copic marker B39. 
  • The dies are PTI snowflake flurries (pinked circle) and Parisian lace doily.
  • The dark blue circle is a 1-3/4" circle punch.  
  • The heart is punched with a 1" EK Success punch.  The right side of the heart is popped up with foam tape.
  • The  embroidery floss is DMC white.
  • The sentiment "Love you" is computer-printed in Giddyup font, using blue ink to match the patterned paper, with a darker blue text outline.
