Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 85

This is my design card for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 85: anything goes with a twist ... something blue. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

I used one of the Dazzling Ace Designs kindly donated by Suzy as the sponsor of the challenge.

This is a large square card, using a piece of Papermania 8 x 8 paper from their Parisienne capsule collection paper for the background and matting an offcut piece of Aspire 'sew pretty' paper on to this (yes, it's some of that paper pad again ... it was handy on my worktop and the colours went so well with the image. I just added a glittered strip and flowers from Hobbycraft.
