#tgifc117 Theme Week - Summertime Blues

Its winter here so I thought I would create some lovely blue skies so that I can dream of the warmth to come in our Australian summer. I am submitting my card in the #TGIFC117 challenge which is themed Summertime Blues
I  blended the following colours in a wash onto some shimmery white cardstock. Started at the top - water washed Pacific Point then Tempting Turquoise then Marina Mist and finally Old Olive.
I also washed the blues onto a separate piece of shimmery white and cut out a rose. I also cut a rose out of Night of Navy. Stuck the outline of the Night of Navy rose down and filled it in with the lighter blue pieces.

Stamped the Happy Birthday in Archival Basic Black ink. The stamp is from the Rose Wonder stampset which can be found on page 162 of the Stampin' Up! catalogue.
