Singing the blues

Blue was the theme of this week's Our Daily Bread Designs challenge: use blue and not just a little! I combined that with the JUGS challenge to create a 3-D flower to create this card. I also used the sketch from Sweet Stop this week. The focal image is from "She's all that" by SU! and a flourish by Inkadinkadoo. I all ready had these sets out (see my previous post) and thought they fit in with the sketch and the 3-D flower (which comes out so much better when you use a 6 petal flower instead of 5!) It might be a bit hard to see in the picture, but I added some white demensional fabric paint to the pearl necklace to give it a little something extra. The flower is gigantic--I definitely won't be mailing this!!!

Your bloom turned out so pretty! I'm glad I went with the 6 petal flower as well...I originally had a 5-petal bloom on my cutting mat and changed it up at the last minute :]

Thanks for playing along with Just Us Girls this week!
