Birthday Blues

The Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge for Week 105 was suggested by Barbara and is "Blues".  This card is about blue as one can be.  I used masking and sponging to get this effect with stamps of pansies and butterflies. Added silver edging to the image and attached to a card base of navy blue.  The photo has a bit of glare but at least  you can see it is on glossy paper and see the shine on the wings and center of pansies  from a Clearstar pen. This was inspired by some techniques that I saw at the Akron Stamping Convention last Saturday.

Challenges:
Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge 105: Use all shades of BLUE to make a card

Stamps; Mark's Finest Papers "Spring Flowers"9Pansies)  and "Daffodil Greeting" (butterfly and sentiment)

I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
