Feeling Blue?

Good morning and welcome to a post to announce the latest challenge over at Cardz4Guyz.
I'm hoping that this gets posted on time as we have been having internet problems and our connection keeps dropping off! I will keep typing in the hope that it will at sometime get published! So if the links aren't all there straight away I do apologise.

This week it is my choice of theme and I went with -


So we would like to see your projects for the guy in your life, where the focus is on the colour blue.
Here is my card for your inspiration.

This card is based on one I did a while ago with a much brighter palette. (here)
I used a balloon stamp from a Dee's Artsy Impressions set Balloons and Banners and the birthday stamp from the same set. For the top panel I die cut a large balloon shape using a MFT die and then using two shades of blue to match the Copic coloured balloons, I stamped inan alternating pattern across the panel. A happy die was cut from the same blue as the base card and mounted across this and then the whole of the top panel was popped up over the stamped and coloured balloons on pads.

For more inspiration please check out the rest of the DT and why not join us this week, we would love to see what you come up with.

I'd like to join in over at -
