Stripes and Flowers

          Continuing with my blues for the weekend.  I started with watercolor paper and brushed on Broken China, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire.  I let that dry and then dropped water onto the strips to pull off some color.
           Using the sketch from Retrosketches, I added the grosgrain ribbon in blue and black hearts.  I cut the larger circle with my cricut in blue cs and the 2 inch circle in white cs with my circle punch.  I used the blue circle to frame the white.  I stamped some flowers with a set by Fiskars and then brushed them in with the same color inks as the stripes.  I used a paper button and colored that with a blue sharpie and then covered that with glossy accents and added the twine through the holes to form a bow.
           The sentiment was stamped with black StazOn and then heat set with clear embossing powder to lift it a bit from the vellum paper.
             All of this was attached to blue cs base.

    A close up of the button because it's not really clear on the main picture
