Blue Pansy

Good morning everyone, please forgive me if I don't manage to visit you as often as usual, my Dad is rather poorly at the moment so I am spending as much time as possible with him and Mum.

This is one of the cards that I made for the launch of the Ooh La La Creations Yesterday's Memories CD a while ago but I never got around to blogging it:

The gorgeous decoupage image and papers are from the CD, I have layered everything onto blue Core'dinations card stock and just added some ribbon and a sentiment from my stash.

I decorated the inside of my card to match:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Card Mania Challenge 20 - Flower Power
Sarah Hurley Challenge 80 - Shades of Blue
Dare to be Sassy Thursday Challenge 176 - Flowers

Thank you for visiting me today.
