Blue, blue, blue...

Well, I guess you might guess that my card is blue.  LOL.  Not because that's how it makes you feel, (at least I hope) but because I decided to use all blues.  I don't know what it is about blues lately, because this is not a color I'm drawn to that often, but I seem to be using it on a few of my cards (sorry, you'll have to wait and see the other one on Thursday).  This is another digi by Deborah Boyet of   Blackberry Lane Designs whom I have the happy privilege of showcasing her images along with another of very talented ladies.  It's not so pale in real life. 

Inside of card

I hope you will stop by and see what she has to share with you.  I colored this with my prismacolor pencils and gamsol.  However, the beautiful new lace doily is by a company called Cheery Lynn Designs.  (I used their heart die on the last card I did.)  I know I'll be getting a few more of their doilies.  I used it on the front by backing it with white card stock that I cut out after tracing around the template.  The one on the inside I didn't want to cover it up at all so it could be seen completely.  I again used one of my MS punches.  The paper, ribbon for the bow, gems and buttons are from stash.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

This is a fabulous card DJ.

And thanks for looking at my blog. I created the star with the fold using a GEO-Die ( I discovered the dies on a UK website (, but you might find other sources.
