Outta the Blu!

Good day fellow crafter's, I hope you all had a crafty weekend.
I sure did making my entry for the Brand Spanking New monthly Indigo Blu Challenge.
And when you see the prize that's on offer you'll wanna play along too.
The first theme as you might expect is BLUE.
And here is my offering:
 I decided to work with the 'Wreathed in Smiles' set

{which you can see is a christmas set} as I had won it from my local craft store {Craftasmic} over the christmas period but not had chance to use it. It just shows how versatile the stamps are.
I started by stamping the swirl in the 4 corners, I then stamped the wreath onto a nesties 'labels 22' die-cut.
I layered another nesties 'floral oval' over the top making it look like I used a background stamp.
 I made a bow from seam binding, flattened it out as best I could and used the bow stamp on top, I wasn't sure it was gonna work but it came out really good.
I stamped and fussy cut 2 ferns and layered up the card adding a red heart, metal embossed & inked butterfly, mini roses and some lace.
I hope you like my offering, I'll have my fingers, toes and everything else crossed come the 21st of next month lol.
Right I must dash, It's my week over on the Snazzy's DT blog and my posts won't write themselves lol
here is a wee peek at my first project which is up already HERE.
Stay Inky

This is fab Nicky and I love the clever way you have used the stamps. Using the wreath as a background stamp is a brilliant idea and I especially like the was the red pops against all the shades of blue. Good luck with the challenge. It's definitely a fab entry.
