Navy blue and white

This week, there's a challenge at Moxie Fab World to cure the winter blues with a navy blue card.  Seeing as it is 35 C here today (that's 95 F), I don't really have the winter blues - quite the opposite - but I thought I'd join in, anyway :)
The Paper Players has a masculine card challenge this week, so I thought I'd try a navy blue masculine card - but this card would really work for a male or a female recipient, I think. 
 I stamped the leaf images onto white cardstock, and then coloured with various blue distress inks (Broken china, chipped sapphire, faded jeans and tumbled glass), then spritzed with Perfect Pearls in water, and then mounted on larger squares of white cardstock, before being mounted onto the textured white card base with dimensional adhesives.  The PTI sentiment is stamped in Chipped sapphire. 
Thanks for visiting - have a great day :)
