Blue Birthday Flowers

To see the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge post please scroll down. 

Some colors photograph differently then they look IRL. This is really a very light blue. Very soft and pretty. I colored the flowers first with Copics and cut them out. Then I found the paper to match knowing that I wanted all blues to go for the MFP challenge to use a monochromatic look with the focal image popped up. It took me forever to find the blues to go together. It is a good thing that I have collected quite a few things in my years of stampin mania!


I actually took a close up to show how I did the ribbon treatment and truly the blues match much better than what it shows in this shot! 

The sketch is from Card Positioning System - it was fun to do. I really like sketch challenges or should I say sketch help! 

Thanks for stopping by and for leaving a comment!

Wow! This is heavenly. Your soft sponging on the oval is so good, that at first I thought it was actually a cut out on the front of the card, and that I was seeing a shadow from within the card! Thanks so much for playing with Speedy's Friends. :)
