The Cure for the Winter Blues

I love trend-watching at CHA, oohing and ahhhing over all the new releases, and waiting for a few of the products to show up on my doorstep.  There's nothing better at the end of the day than driving home to find happy mail on my front porch!

Cath Edvalson of Paper Crafts Magazine is always on top of the new trends and she loves the new color trend of navy.  I do too. It's the new black, I tell you. It goes with everything. 

Cath issued a challenge on the Moxie Fab World blog to make a project featuring navy and to link it back the blog.

I decided to play along and I used the new Genuine line from Authentique that was part of this month's kit at Birds of a Feather Kit Co. 


My friend made the terrific zipper flower and sent it to me in a swap. I got the better end of that deal!  I thought the flower worked perfectly here with the denim feel of this paper line.

I used Authentique's March sketch to guide my card design, flipping the sketch on its side (as shown below) and eliminating the banner. 


If you'd like to play along in the the Cure for the Winter Blues Challenge at Moxie Fab World, you can find the link here.   The deadline to enter is Sunday, March 11.  Click here to play along in the Authentique sketch challenge. That challenge ends April 4.
