A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge No49

A Spoonful of Sugar's challenge this week is to make something with the colours Blue and Green. At first I was really stumped as it is not often I use these colours together. Anyway, I had a think about it, looked in my small stash of papers and I found a couple of sheets of K & Co papers I had bought at some time. Great, I had the start of my card. I have used a stamp from Whiff of Joy called Willow with Sunhat. This stamped image was sent to me by someone on UKS. I love this and must get the stamp.
I have also for the first time used the sewing machine to attach one of the strips of DP.
Also did decorate the inside of the card for the first time.
