Blue Delft Tile Style

Last month at convention, I saw a fabulous card that my friend Michelle Breton had made.  It was simple, but gave me a very old-world feel.  I totally forgot to get a picture and was trying to remember what it looked like.  I remembered she has a blog so checked it out and luckily found her card here.  You know how everyone's stamping looks different, even when you're copying someone else's idea.  So, of course my version looks a little different from her original card.  Check her's out and then here's mine...

Stamps:  Everything Eleanor, and Petite Pairs
Ink:  Midnight Muse
Paper:  Midnight Muse and Whisper White
Accessories:   Simply Scored Tool and Diagonal Plate, 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, White Organza Ribbon, Sponge Daubers, and Dimensionals
Because of the total blue and white look, along with the diagonal scored lines, this reminds me ofblue delft tiles surrounding an old fireplace.  I just love the crisp look of this!  And it's so easy to do.  Just do your stamping, get out that diagonal plate and the Simply Scored Tool and go to town with it!

I thought of sponging the outside edges of the main white layer, but I refrained and kept it looking as crisp and clean as possible.  I chose a different ribbon than Michelle used, because I wanted it to be white.  Could have used the new Stitched Satin Ribbon in the Midnight Muse color too, but liked this better. 

Hope you love this card as much as I do.  Thanks for sharing your lovely card Michelle!  I really appreciate it!!  Think I might make up a few more for my stash and just change out the sentiment.  Ok, that's it for today, lots of stuff to do.  See you soon...    Sharon
