Feeling Blue and "Distressed" Challenge (CIE)

Hello! The new challenge at Cards In Envy Challenge is Feeling Blue and "Distressed": create a card with Distress Inks and a lot of the color blue.

I had a lot of fun creating this background with blue Distress Inks and stamps! I love the blues in this vintage image from the Graphics Fairy. This type of crinkle ribbon squishes nice and flat for mailing.

Card #6 for the coffee lovers hop

Here's the other card I made for the hop, using the same Tim Holtz stamp set but a more feminine color scheme and bow. The sentiment is from a different set by STAMPlorations:

Coffee Lovers blog hop card #5

I made two somewhat similar versions of a card. Here is the first one, which I plan to give to my son for Father's Day. He's a coffee lover!

Coffee card #3

Hello. Here is my card #3 for the Coffee Lovers Spring/Summer Blog Hop! I have had this stamp for quite awhile and thought its pattern would go well with some Native American-type theme DP on a 6x6 pad by Pink Paislee. Here's my card:
