Floral Blues,

I was in another blue mood today, and made this card to go
with a few challenges,
I used the free digi image of the beautiful Cala Lily from Soft Pencil
I found a piece of pansy patterned vellum, which I used as my background
on a plain blue card stock, added silver mirri board, the Blue with the black paper I used for the toppers are from Cute Daisy May
and the floral ones are stamping up scraps I had in my stash.

I added blue ribbon and two quilled flowers which originally white,
but I stood there and coloured with a glitter blue sakura pen,
added lots of silver glue glitter to all the flowers on the backing papers,
and as a edge around the digi image, which I used 6 shades of blue to colour in and
2 shades of green for the stem, added some bugs and distressed with blue chalk.

The challenges are

Sketch and Bling - Truly Scrumptious

Bugs - Saturday Challenge

Flowers - Cute Daisy May

Blossoms - Crafty Card makers

Thanks for looking,
