Pretty in Blue

Hi all, this is the card I've made for this weeks LOTV Challenge - Pink and Blue, I normally only use blue on boys cards so this was quite a challenge for me.  I knew which image I wanted to use but it took a while to find the papers, luckily I remembered my Bearly Mine CD's - problem solved.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

I used a mix of flowers to decorate the card along with some die cut butterflies.  I've added some lace and a seam binding bow topped with a gem brad.  To finish I stamped a sentiment on the same backing paper that I used on the rest of the card.

Finally I decorated the inside of my card to match the front.

Image:  LOTV Fairies Die Cut
Papers:  Bearly Mine Designs Designer Extreme CD
Tools:  Die-namics Butterflies
Embellishments:  gems, lace and ribbon from stash
Flowers and Leaves:  Wild Orchid Crafts and Joanna Sheen
Sentiment:  Polka Doodles stamp

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

Bearly Mine Challenge 14 - Anything Goes
Paper Play Challenge - Things with Wings

Thank you for visiting today, any comments will be very much appreciated.
