ABC Challenge - I is for...

We have another colour challenge for you this week at the ABC Challenge:

'I is for Indigo Blue'

Blue is my favourite colour, so I loved this challenge! :0)

I've used 'Musing Melinda' (by Whiff of Joy) for my card...I always think she looks kind of blue! lol
I coloured to match these gorgeous papers from the 'Boxer' pad by BasicGrey...one of which I embossed using my 'Textile' Cuttlebug folder. The sentiment stamp is by Studio G, and the flowers are a mixture of Poppicrafts and Hobbycraft...it doesn't show very well in the photo, but they've been spritzed with 'Baby's Breath' Shimmerz. I distressed all of the edges, and added a few pieces of card candy to finish.


As always, don't forget to check out the rest of the design teams fab cards over on the ABC Challenge blog.
