It's a blue, blue Sunday

I had lost the papers I had originally coloured this Penny Black Mouse to, so I had to track down some more to match and there lies the problem. I found this one piece of Basic Grey which matched perfectly, lucky for me the Sweet Sketch Wednesday this week looked like I could get away with just one piece. But I had a real job to find a background mat but found the plain blue in another BG pack.
The sketch got turned and then my ribbon slipped down a bit which I think worked better for me. The flowers looked boring so I popped them through the cuttlebug using the swiss dots folder. But it still looked plain then I remembered that Simon Says Stamps had popped some black gems in my order as a Thank you and as you can see they worked brilliantly just want it needed.
I had a fabulous day yesterday at MJ All day crop,  I did get some scrapbooking done but none quite finished which I hope to do today.

  58. Hi Debby, I think this card is just adorable! I love the colour combo and know exactly what you mean about these sort of flowers - I have loads and don't use them as they always look like they 'need' something else but I'm never sure what that something else it. Sarah

  59. Hi Debby, this is a very cute card. Love this image and all of your blue papers work perfectly together. Love your added embellishments, and your clear lines to your card it's simple and not over the top with so much added embellishments that your can't see the card. Great job and thanks so much for sharing your card with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.
