Blue Glass Inspired

I really loved the soft blues and greens in this picture for Beate's inspiration challenge this week. I immediately picked out some embellishments and thought the card would come together in a snap.

Boy, was I wrong! For some reason this card gave me fits. I tried several variations of it last night, all of which ended up in the trash.

I set it aside and figured I would sleep on my ideas. Well, tonight nothing had changed. I tried and tried and just got sick of fiddling with it, so this is what I finally ended up with. Sorry, Beate. I love you, but this challenge almost killed me!

Stamps: Friendship Blooms
Paper: Chocolate Chip, PTI Aqua Mist
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots, Primas, brad (Oriental Trading Co.), scallop border punch, satin ribbon (PTI), sheer ribbon (Dollar Tree)
