Something new, something blue

 From the outside, used the sketch from a Gem of a Challenge

The easel card

Close up on the ribbon and charm.

Good Day

Winter came with a bang......sniffing and coughing. That is not the PART of the winter that I like. Luckily it can only last 2 weeks and hopefully it will past sooner, than later.
A wedding card, so not me, but Alison does these kind of cards so beautiful, that I decided to try it a bit and there are some weddings coming up this summer. I've started off with iris blue and orange, but I prefer to do it in a subtle touch. The stamp is from Magnolia and I thing it is the very first time I've used it. I've used different white papers to add a bit of dimension to the card. Used a embossing plus: Blooming Bouquet, from Cuttlebug on the blue parchment paper. The flowers is left overs from a previous project and the embellishments is from my stash.
