Blue Girl

Don't ask me why I chose blue for this card... it's really not one of my favourite colours and I avoid it if I can! I think the only thing I possess that is blue, are my jeans... and have you ever noticed the distinct lack of blue food!!
Well, the blue obviously knew I didn't like it and so conspired with my camera to make it imposible to get a good photograph. These are the best of a bad bunch.
This card is much prettier in person... honest!

I am playing with the big girls this week and entering my card for the challenge over at WOJ. They are changing to fortnightly challenges, so you actually have until May 19th to follow Jane's wonderful sketch and get your entry in. Pop over there and take a peek at the awesome work of the DT.

I have noticed that quite a few people have been adding glitter to their cards,
especially round the edges, to great effect. Well, I am a glitter girl so I had to give it a go and I like it - as if I neeeded another excuse to buy more glitter!

Recipe :
Stamp - WOJ from the Summer 09 collection, coloured with copics and stickles glitter.
Text Stamp - from the Papermania, Stamping for Him set.
Design Paper - Papermania, Blueberry Hill.
Sizzix Die cut swirl. Fiskars border punch.
Blooms from Wild Orchid Crafts
Lace and adhesive pearls from my stash.
