In a Blue and Feminine Mood

Hello everyone and happy Monday!!  
Hope you are all having a wonderful day!

I have a card to share with you.  I haven't done a lot of crafting lately (have fallen way behind in my schedule) but, every once in a while, I feel the need to create something.  This card came together  because of that need.

I really had no specific idea in my mind when I started .. only that I wanted to make something blue (my fave colour) and feminine.
 So, I gathered some blue Kaisercraft papers together and then some white as well and worked out what layers I wanted.  Cut them to size and then tore and crumpled a few of the edges until I was happy with the arrangement.
I then went hunting for some flowers and, after trying a few different ones, decided on these.

I also tucked a blue flower in the corner and added a  touch of lace ..
.. and added some more lace in a couple of other spots just for a bit more interest.
Of course, I had to add some prills and micro beads as well.

Inserted a piece of gauze under the flowers and die cut the leaves from a scrap of Maja papers ..
.. and am quite happy with the result!

I am sharing this card with the Anything Goes Challenge # 114 at

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope I have inspired you to create a little something yourself.
A special thank you for those who left such lovely comments on my last post.  You warm my heart with your kind words.

 Have a wonderful day!!
Take care and God Bless.

  8. Your card is so soft and elegant! I love the little touches of texture.

  9. My favourite colours too and super pretty combined with the white and lace. I love the fine traceries on the Maja papers which you used for the leaves and the grill/beads combo adds a touch of elegance. How lovely to create "just because" and come up with this marvellous card.

  10. So gorgeous, Margaret. Such lovely colors and don't you just adore the texture with Prills and microbeads!! ~ Blessings, Tracey

  18. So pretty Margaret, those beads look so pretty have been playing with some myself, but not quite happy with how mine look. I adore this ...

  19. Oh my goodness Margaret, this is just stunning! I used to think that blue was for boys, but I am becoming more and more fond of using blue for feminine cards and you have just reminded me why... STUNNING!!! Love the litte bits of lace tucked under the corners, and those flowers with the yellow stamens are so beautiful! Lots of layers of distressed papers and of course, your signature Prills! Really gorgeous my friend! hugs :)
