Deco Lady in Blue

Today's card is a further attempt to use up my ridiculous pile of stash - I've used a Crafts U Print freebie that came with a magazine. It's not my usual style of card but the colour and image really caught my eye.

I do love blue - unfortunately it isn't the most popular colour to use in card making. I've layered this decoupaged image using foam pads then added a little personal touch - some coloured art deco style peel-offs. I've also added a little bling on the head-dress with some tiny pearls coloured blue with a pro-marker. The image is mounted on some blue marble effect patterned paper and the greeting came with the decoupage sheet.

I'm currently making a mixture of cards for an older lady and I'm sure this is ideal.
