Bluer than blue

Good day

I just love music cards, whether it is by theme or inspiration. This time my eye caught the challenge at Aurora Wings. So I Googled some songs and ended up with Bluer than Blue by Michael Johnson, and this Primrose Sprite just suited it so well. Then I had to see if you do get blue primroses and got this nice image too. The designer paper from Paper Touch just brought everything together. I used my Prisma colour pencils to colour the image and add the touch of lace with buttons to finish it off.

Challenges I took inspiration from:
Crafty Cardmakers #219 - Lace or ribbon
Aurora Wings #71 - Inspired by music
Incy Wincy 1-13 Oct - Blue and button
Creative Knockouts #266 - Lots of layers
The Outlawz Wednesday Sketch Challenge
Colour Crazy Craft #40 - Anything goes

Thank you and have a fantastic day. Hopefully not so blue.
Hugs from Africa!

Lovely inspiration song, Olga and your coloring of Primrose Spite is gorgeous. So great that you included a picture of that spectacular primrose, too. I've not seen one like that before. Everything matches so perfectly and you've done a great job with the sketch, as well. Thanks so much for joining our Inspired by Music Challenge at Aurora Wings. xxD
