Blue is the colour!

I do love blue! My ex-husbands new wife loves blue too so I made her birthday card just using blue inks! It's her birthday tomorrow but the party is today so I'm taking this along!
I used the Artistic Outpost set - Flower Market. The small flowers around the edge of the card just repeated using different sections. I used DIs Stormy Sky, Chipped Sapphire and Faded Jeans. The flower was made by layering up a combination of flowers after smooshing them in inks. Everything was then given a coat of Twinkling H2os - pearl blue although the sparkle doesn't show up!

I hope she likes it! 

I would like to enter in the following challenges 

Country View ChallengesGabrielle has chosen the theme "Monochromatic"

Artful Times Challenge Blog actually has the theme "Blue" and I must admit to being influenced by the team!

Thanks for looking, Chris

I hope I'm not too late to enter this in Simon Says Monday Challenge - where the theme is also 'Blue'
