Sending "blue" Wishes Your Way

Hello Peeps!! 

I have another card to share with you today.
This one I made using the color challenge  at the Paper Players, sadly I missed out on be able to link it up there. That is alright, I am still happy to share it with ya'll!!!

The colors for the challenge was Sahara Sand, Pistachio Pudding and Lost Lagoon.

I decide to try my hand at some Lost Lagoon  "blue" flowers.
I stamped the flower from the Butterfly Basics stamp set onto some Naturals Ivory card stock using my Black Stazon ink pad.
I colored up the image using my aqua painter and ink pads.
I then made the crazy decision to hand cut out this image. LOL!! 
It wasn't too hard to do, mmmm yea NOT to bad at all!!!
I then set it aside to make the rest of the card.
The base is Sahara Sand card stock and then I used another layer of Sahara to stamp the Hardwood BG onto. I used Sahara Sand ink for that.
I also stamped some leaves from the Butterfly Basic set using the Sahara ink as well.
I added a small piece of doily to the bottom corner and sponged a bit of Sahara ink onto the doily.

I added the flower image with some dimensionals. I tied some twine around the bottom and added a vintage vanilla button. 
I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Naturals card stock using Lost Lagoon ink. I hand cut the flag end, curled it a bit and glue it onto the card, tucking it under the edge of a bit of the flower leaves.
I stamped three butterflies one form the Butterfly Basics set and two from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set. I cut these out and added them to the panel, I tucked one down by the button.
I added some basic pearls to the butterfly centers.

 I then matted this piece with some more of the Naturals ivory cardstock and glued it all to the base.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Oh, Vicki, this is gorgeous! I just love the colors and your fussy cutting! Yes, it's definitely a lot of work, but it sure was worth it, my friend! It really makes your card extra special. And I love the background with the fern stamped on it with your butterflies and the button, twine, and doily! Hugs!
