I've got the Blues

No not me my card!!
I made this one just because I wanted to! 


The digital image is a pre-coloured one from Joanna Sheen's Dasiy and Friends CD which I've layered up to give dimension to the card. Backing paper is also from the CD. Border punch is from Martha Stewart, corner dies and swirls from Marianne Design and scalloped mat from Spellbinders. Ribbon, button, flower and pearls are from my stash. Bow has been tied on my new mini bowdabra.
I've really enjoyed making  a card just because I wanted to for a change - must do it more often!
