My fave colour is blue.. so

Why oh why was this card so hard to make!!!
Maybe today is not a day to craft.
Go on over to Less Is More and have a look at some amazing cards... 
Here is mine..


I started off with A4 white CS folded in half
I then measured and cut out six squares
(I really do need a square punch)
I had decided I wanted one blue flower
BUT
when I had made it, it wasn't right.
So I sat and cut out 15 more hearts
(by hand..could do with a heart punch too.lol)
In three different colours.
Glued together and then glued on some gems.
I then spent at least 15 minutes deciding were to position them
mmm I don't have any blue gems or lettering!!
 what to do... 
I will colour them myself.... 
Good idea... So I colour the dots, then start on the sentiment
and... just after I take this picture, the pen starts to run out
(ARRRGGGGHHH)
I know it is shades of blue, but I was a little worried the letters would not look right
(pen is now in the bin)
Here are the letters getting lighter as you read down...lol

I then added an insert, using the original flower made

I may have another go at a blue card later, 
I have my order's we are watching Rango.. while having tea
which I have to make..
And on the menu tonight is... Beef cobbler.
(may take a pic)


Thanks for stopping by xx

So you need a heart punch, a square punch...more pens (I know Copics are already on the list) gosh you are going to have a pretty big list at this rate LOL

Gosh that was a lot of hand cutting, 10/10 for that!
Maybe if you had done another layer to make the single flower you originally wanted it would have worked. Lovely card nevertheless
Thanks so much
