Pastel blues with Sarah Kay stamp.

Good afternoon my friendly bloggers.

This card I love. The sarah Kay image is so cute and I like the different shades of blue. The card is still girly even though the colours are blue.

Most of the paper and flower embellishments were from my stash which I've had for a while. The flower embellishments I got from eBay , I think they are beautiful! I used some spotted patterned paper to cover my card blank on the bottom half and some flower patterned paper to cover the top half. Both papers were matted onto some pastel blue plain card before sticking onto the card blank.

I stuck some blue checkered ribbon in the centre of the card. I coloured the image using my pro markers in a colour to match the papers. I then used some xcut dies and cut the topper with them through my GC. I used a pro marker to edge around the topper and matted onto some darker blue patterned paper. I then finished my card with those gorgeous flower embellishments ( too nice to use lol) and some pearly gems.

Don't often use my coloured stamped images on a card so this was a rarity for me lol but I'm glad I did cause I like the finished look.

What a fantastic card. I had to go back twice and read what you had written as I was sure the image had been ready coloured. You did a fabulous job on the colouring. Really lovely.
