Shades of blue for Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 53

The theme for today's Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 53 is anything goes with shades of blue - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team - and we would love to see your entries.

This is my design card using Bugaboo 'block sentiments - if friends were flowers' (Bugaboo Stamps are the sponsors of the challenge). I coloured with copics (I seem to have neglected these recently, so it made a change!). I matted this on to a snippet of unknown spotted blue paper that was cut with a Spellbinders marvellous squares die. This was then matted on to a ready decorated card blank - the same pattern is on the back.

This is also for:
