Hi blog friends! 

It's time for another CAS challenge over at Outlawz (this time it's my turn to challenge you) and I you're invited to play along.

It's a September birthstone challenge.
"Sapphire, the September birthstone, has been popular since the Middle Ages and, according to folklore, will protect your loved ones from envy and harm. Medieval clergy wore sapphires to symbolize heaven, while commoners thought the gem attracted heavenly blessings". This challenge is to make a monochomatic card using Sapphire Blue as the dominate color....keeping it CAS.
There are some awesome prizes to win and lots of inspiration at The Outlawz Challenges each and every day.   
This is a card I made for a little inspiration.
For this card I used only 3 dies, one embossing folder and some Copic Markers for coloring. 
Dies:  Memory Box "Joy" and "Country Landscape"
             Impression Obsession "DIE108-F". 
I colored the sledder in an ombre technique with Copic Markers. 
Embossing Folder is from Sizzix and it's "Falling Snow", (although I'm not sure that's it's name).
My card stock is from GKD "White" and "Blue Denim". 
Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you all have a fabulous week!
