Bloomin Blue

 Bloomin Blue - I am thrilled to be Mays' guest designer for Corrosive Challenges. Corrosive Challenges is sponsored this month by Tickled Pink Stamps. Come back in 2 weeks and see what I did with one of their fabulous images!

The challenge this fortnight is Flowers, Bling and Doilies. Perfect for Mother's Day! I want to wish all the Mother's out there a big Happy Mothers! Blue is my mother's favorite color! I know she will love this card.

For my card I used Hot Off the Press's Sapphire DP. I have cherished this little paper pad. The papeers are all blue in different shades. The paper is really pretty and as it is only blues, it is so easy to use.
My image is Designed to Delight. This image was a homework assignment for my Copic's class. We were learning how to color copper. I like how real it looks. The trick is a high contrast as metals are shiny.

I cut the image and scalloped circle with a SB and added little gemstones to the center of the flowers for my bling. My doilie is from the cake decorating area of Walmart.

 I finished the card off with 3 little gems to the bottom left corner.
