TIOT #44- I've got the blues

Our challenge this week is "I've got the blues". We are to use any mix of blues and one neutral and/or metallic (like silver or gold).
Be sure to check out Susana's store blog, Follow Your Heart, to see how you can play along and also to see the other wonderful team members creations! 
I also wanted to welcome Marti to the team!!  She is so creative and will be a great asset to the team!
I just love these new Elisabeth Bell for SCACD Sampler #2 images...they are so fun!!

What I did:
This was a rare occasion when I picked my paper first. I wanted to be sure I had the right shades of blue when I colored my image. 
I stamped Boho Chic in Memento ink onto my cardstock and colored her with copics. I added some accents with copic glitter pens. I chose the wrong color for the flowers in her hair as you can hardly see them but a little sparkle helped a bit.

I cut out my image with my new Labels Four Nestabilities. Before I took the image out of the nesties I sponged VersaMagic Aspen Mist around the edges.
After I had cut my designer paper for the front of the card I used my older than hills Fiskars corner edgers to decorate the corners.
To finish the card I added some fiber and embellishments.

Danni,

This card is seriously stunning!!! Every day even though I have not been able to come out much I read you almost first in my google reader or on my side bar on my blog and I always smile when I see your creations you make me Happy Danni, and I so have to thank you for all your comments lately even when I have not been able to recipricate them very much!!!! I have lost the majority of my commenters just because I can not seem to get out these days, but you still come and comment and that means so much to me!!!!

I am so sorry I have not been able to come out and leave my compliments very much lately but I hopey you know it is not because I have not wanted to it is just the 3 kiddo's schedules are keeping me insanely busy these days and I am still keeping up with your gorgeous creations through my google reader, but I know that does not mean as much as a comment would I just want to stress that I adore you work and your spirit and your creations so much!!!

I adore this blue and white card and seriously I love the way it looks like a shadow box very creative girl and congrats on winning the Mystery Monday Challenge too!!!!
