Blue Plaid with Cream

My last few cards have been very BRIGHT colored. They were fun to do, but today I wanted a calmer and quieter color scheme. Soft blues with cream and a touch of brown and gray. Ahhh.

Card details:
  • Patterned paper is a PowerPoint plaid (text lines at 90 and 45-degree angles) printed on Papertrey Ink spring rain card stock.
  • The other card stock is Papertrey Ink vintage cream, enchanted evening (dark blue), and blueberry sky (medium blue card base).
  • The "thinking of you" sentiment and the dotted-line circle are computer-printed with blue ink in Papyrus font.
  • The twine is DMC perle cotton, #3, ecru color.
  • Circle punches are EK Success, 1-1/2" and 1-3/4".
