Blue and Brown

Hi everybody

I hope you have had a wonderful day.  I have a card which I made for a commission to show you.  I was particularly asked if I could use an image that evoked the style of flappers or art deco, so here it is.  However, I had forgotten how awful Crystal Stickles looks when it is photographed, so apologies for the bird - it looks fab in real life, but awful in the pictures.

This is the inside

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Brown and Blue - Die-ing for a Challenge
One Stitch at a Time - Girly
Pan Pastel Challenge - Add a flower
Quirky Crafts - For a Special Lady (this was for a 30th birthday)

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you. Hugs,
