Feeling the blues!!

I love the sketch over at friday sketchers this week so couldn't wait to give it a go! But I wanted to use some different colours to my norm {ie not pink/green/brown} so I opted for blue, more to prove to myself that you can still make a girly card with the colour blue!

I coloured the gorgeous Miss Anya image with my new Koh-i-noor pencils and Sansodor that I got from Elzybells. I think it's going to take me a while to get the hang of these, more practice is what I need!! I cute her out with my nesties and inked the edges. Papers were free with a magazine. CS is coredinations and I have added faux stitching with a white sakura pen. The scalloped edges were done with my SU border punch. The sentiment is from the 'everyday greetings' clear set again from Elzybells! I love this new set, there are so many sentiments you can create with this one! Flowers are from Prima and the pearl brads are from my stash!

Well I am really pleased with this card and am loving the blues, for once!!

How warm has it been today and it's only set to get hotter over the next few days!!

Thanks for stopping by to say hi!

Hugs, Vicky -x-
