It does seem a rather appropriate title as this is supposed to be the most depressing day of the year -- but look on the bright side, things can only get better! But I did, in fact, make this for The Cuttlebug Spot Challenge this week and I think it'll do for the Papertake Weekly Challenge too.
The base card is pale blue Tapestry card to which I added some K & Co paper in a gorgeous bluey paisley mix. I then added a strip of dark blue textured card topped with a strip of white linen paper with the edges decorated using Martha Stewart's 'Doiley' border punch. Then a piece of navy blue organza ribbon knotted either side of a heart of pale blue Alchemy card run through the cuttlebug with the 'Script' folder and the embossing enhanced with Archival Ink in 'Cobalt'.
I printed out the sentiment 'I'm blue without you' on the computer and mounted it on a dark blue homemade ribbon slider with the same navy ribbon knotted on the sides.
The other embellishments are little blue acrylic stone hearts by Habico and a couple of punched out hearts with little blue pearls on them.
