It's Blue and Green at Isabella Sketchbook

Happy Wednesday everyone and welcome to another challenge at Isabella Sketchbook.  Today we'd like you to "chill out" and make a card using the colours of Blue and Green.  I've kept my card very simple this week, as I want to focus more in this gorgeous image of Isabella's called Sweetheart Flower which you can purchase here.

I hope my friend Paola visits me today so that she can see that I've used the lovely swirl template she made for me.  The tiny pearls arrived in time for this challenge, so I've used them on this swirl.  I absolutely love this die by Nellie Snellen and will have to invest in at least one more.  Image was coloured using Copics and I cut 2 of the bigger flowers and raised them for a 3D effect, which you can see better in the pic below.


If you haven't visited Isabella Sketchbook's challenge blog yet, please do so now, you won't be disappointed.  Isabella has revamped the blog and I think it must be one of the prettiest challenge blogs I've seen in blogland. 

The winner of our challenge will win 2 Isabella images and the I Won badge to place in their sidebar.  So... what are you waiting for... see you at Isabella's.  And remember, you need to use an Isabella Image for this challenge.

Thanks for popping by. Hugs Sharon x

Sharon this card is just so beautiful! I love the blues and greens and such pretty flowers. I've ahd a request for some small pretty flowery cards so must take a look at some of the digi sites - or dig out my old stamps from the box at the bottom of the wardrobe! Have you seen the new Nestability dies coming out - gorgeous and there is one set very similar to your die. Just as well they wont hit the UK shops for a while though!
enjoy your day.
