Did I have the Blues?????

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
This is a card I started for a DT piece, however I was not feeling in my head 100% and therefore what was created really did not do a DT piece justice, so I created another piece in stead.

I decided to try out a totally blue and white card, don't think this image was the best thing for it, as a blue little hedgie did not quite look right to me, you may thing differently but you know when you get that No! it just does not look right, well this is one of those creations.

It is a Birth of a Little Boy card
The base layer is a deep blue card as is the contrast.  The papers are some new Prima ones I got from the Hobby House.  The flower is Wild Orchid and the pearls and little butterfly pearl are from the Hobby House too.  The lace is from Grimsby Crafts as are the Marianne die hearts.  The swirls and scrolls are Marianne dies too. All the edges have been distressed and the sentiment is from My Sentiments Exactly.
The image has been coloured in a variety of blue copic shades.

I would like to welcome my new followers and say thank you to all my wonderful visitors who leave such inspirational comments, I love them all thank you....

Don't forget I have candy here if your interested,

Great card Kate, I think the blue is very appropriate, and I just love those daisies.
