Something Blue

Have you seen the party going on at Aurora Wings Facebook group for their 3K members celebration this weekend?   There's a massive showcase of new images plus loads of games and prizes.  I recently came in the top 3 and chose the gorgeous 'Flora 2: Goddess of Flowers'.  She's a pretty daunting image, so I went monochromatic to make it a little easier.  I decided to make her into a wedding card as I think colouring her in blue was perfect for this theme.

  • Coloured cardstock
  • Core'dinations cardstock
  • Sizzix butterfly dies
  • Pearls
  • Lace
