Got the Blues

This week the challenge over at Phindy's Friday Challenge Blog is "Got the Blues" and I knew this cute little fairy would be perfect for the challenge.

I found this sketch at The Sweet Stop and decided to use it for my layout.  I think I got it fairly well given that my card is a different shape.  Now blue flowers aren't something I have in my stash and I couldn't find a patterned card stock that blended with my papers in order to make my own so I dug out some purple flowers and painted them.  I think they turned out pretty well and now I know that if I am ever stuck I can alter flowers to match.  Reminds me a bit of dyeing satin shoes back in the day :)
