True Blue...

Good morning, it's time for a new challenge at Allsorts and our theme this week is 'True Blue', as chosen by yours truly. I'd like you to use blue as the main colour on your project but you can use other colours too. Our wonderful sponsors are FlonzCraft and The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.

So onto my DT card, well as it's my challenge I've actually made 2 ;-) 

The first one uses a gorgeous WOJ image that I bought from the lovely Pops when she had a stash declutter. This beauty has been in my 'to ink' pile for far too long :-(  I've used loads of blooms and the last of some gorgeous lace...

Image - Confirmed Melinda by Whiff of Joy
Sentiment - from the Everyday Button Sentiments set from Whimsy Stamps
Papers - Mint Julep by Basic Grey
Lace - can't remember where this is from but I love it
Pearl medallion - The Hobby House
Other - Whimsy Stamps Button die, Memory Box Tiny Bow die, La-La Land Heart Banner die, Oval and scallop oval Nestabilities dies, Stardust Stickles, brown chalk inkpad

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
ABC Challenges - N for Not Just One (flowers, pearl medallion, lace)
Papertake Weekly - The Sound of Music (song - Angels by Robbie Williams)

Onto my 2nd card, this is using an image and some beautiful silky crush ribbon from our sponsors, do you like my big bow...?

Image - Fairy With Magic Wand from FlonzCraft coloured with Promarkers & Flexmarkers
Sentiment - from the Celebration Circle Pennants set from Whimsy Stamps
Paper - Mint Julep by Basic Grey
Ribbon, flowers & buttons - The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop
Pearls - stash
Other - Whimsy Stamps Circle Pennants dies, Circle & scallop circle Nestabilities dies, Stardust Stickles, brown chalk ink pad
