Blue flowers card

It's week 60 now over at 'Less is More' & it's
a recipe this time which is...........
                Take three challenges
We have to combine three challenges from previous
 weeks so I chose the following.

Week 5 colour pastel colours
Week 16 theme butterfly/butterflies
Week 22  colour shades of blue

I used my new Artemio clear stamps & stamped
three of the flower heads onto a layer of card. I hand
 drew the stems as I found the stem stamp parts a bit
 thick and blurry looking when stamped...so annoying
 that. I then used some chalk to add interest. I
punched a butterfly and coloured it in a matching
 Promarker. I stamped the sentiment ( Jane's script),
using the same blue ink as one of the flower heads
(Ultramarine). A little glamour dust on the edge of
 the flowers & a few coloured pearls completed
 the card. I used little 3d pads to raise the main image
 layer too.
 Such a busy time this next week,including a funeral,
 days away, baby sitting , trips to my sons & an Easter
egg hunt & meal I always host for all our children etc. at
 the weekend too.So  that's why I had to make my card
 so early.Happy crafting everyone !
