So I made another distress inked background, but this time a simple one, without spattered paint or water dots. I tried to make one without too much distraction from the sparkly paper in the background, the "big" bang.

The card is almost all blue, with a bit of sparkly bronze and black. The light blue sentiment fitting nicely in the colour scheme. Therefore, the blue challenge from Allsorts is a perfect one and hopefully monochrome enough (the sparkly is a bit of a stretch) for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge.

I used "Fireworks Display" die from MFT as main image, as well as the "You Wow Me" stamp set and die for the sentiment. Everything was layered and it was a super fun and super fast birthday card. Especially the colour combination (I have a lot of male friends I make cards for) is perfect for the less bling kind of person ;)

So I spy the B for Blue, Black and Bang for the Stamping Sensation Challenge a fun and very easy card for all the last minute crafters out there!

Happy Crafting,
