Crazy 4 Challenges.....Blue Birthday

Happy Saturday Peeps!!!

Time for a new challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges.

Our challenge this week is: 

Show Me The Blue!
September's birthstone is sapphire so make blue the most prominent color on your card.

 I decided to pull out one of my fave sets and make some "blue sapphire flowers".

I stamped the flower image twice on my panel, not getting the whole image on either side,

I stamped with Black Stazon ink onto some heavy weight card stock. I used my aqua painter and Pacific Point ink.
The leaves are colored using Old Olive ink/

The sentiment is from the Cottage Greetings stamp set.
The base of the card is Pacific Point and then a layer of Black and the DSP is from the Pretty Petals pack.
I added two more strips of Black and layered some Silver Foil paper over them.
I used three of our mini silver brads at the bottom under the main panel. I decided I would like to add a few more onto the main image piece but I had already added it to the base with my dimensionals, so I snipped off the shank and then just glued down the top rounded pieces. I love them so I am sure I will be doing that again!

Thanks for stopping by today!!!
