Shades of blue are my favorite colors and I was really excited to finally use this beautiful Thoughtful Bird set in creating this card. The first stamped layer is Crystal Blue, the second layer is second generation Pacifica and the top layer is Sapphire.
From top to bottom the background panel uses Crystal Blue card stock, Sapphire CS and White Shimmer Trim. The focal panel mat is Black.
