Diamond Best Wishes

              It seems that I was in a a bit of a blue mood this weekend.  Must have been all the work on the pool and working on that blue liner.   It's fired into the brain with this heat.
             I used a sketch challenge for this one from Die Cuttin' Diva's and I used the cut from Cricut's Lyrical Letters.
            The colors I used came from another challenge by ColorQ of lite blue, teal, grey, soft brown and white.
            I started with the blue CS and cut the sentiment with my Cricut three times and stacked them to give it some dimension.  From white CS I stamped the diamonds using a set from Fiskars.  I used Peacock Feathers, Brushed Corduroy and Hickory Smoke. I masked out the middle so that it wouldn't be so busy behind the die cut.   I ran some faux stitches with a brown Sharpie.  Using the same ink colors, I blotted some ink on some scrap white - let that dry - then using a hole punch, popped one of each.  I then welled some glossy accents on top of each to hand make jewels to match.   Using dimensional tape I anchored the whole piece onto the same color CS base to tie it all together.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges if I may.
