Say It In.......Shades of Blue

Did everyone have a lovely weekend?  We were invited to friends yesterday for a lovely BBQ and the weather was fantastic. 

I hope my last post all made sense about how I make paper flowers.  Its difficult when you have to write down how you do something but I hope all the photos helped.

Here is today's card.

The challenge at Annabelle Stamps is to use shades of blue.  I have used papers from Pink Petticoat.  The backing card is in pebble and I have used air force blue and turquoise in the spotty paper.

The sentiment is from a clear stamp set I have, so I just stamped it directly onto the card and the flower digi stamp is one from Pink Petticoat.  I have used promarker to colour it in and added some gems.

The paper flower is made from scrunched up die cut scalloped circles and I have added a flower shaped brad to the centre.  I have also used die cut scalloped circles for the topper to mat and layer.

The layout of the card is for the challenge at Sweet Stop Sketches.
