Bella's and Bronte's Challenge

Happy Sunday!

Here is a card I made yesterday for this week's Bella and Bronte's (Mo Manning's) challenge, which is " feeling blue". It doesn't have to be a monochromatic card but some blue on the card.
I thought this image with blueberries would be perfect to use for the challenge.

Here is my card.

I did a lot of distressing and sponging using distress ink, and sewed around the edges. The image has been colored with derwent coloursoft pencils and copic markers. Papers are from My Minds Eye and card stock is stampin up. I embellished with some lace, paper flowers, thread and brads.

And here are the challenges I am entering this to:


And here is a close up of the image. As you can see I did a lot of sponging and distressing. Might have went overboard with it a little.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!

I love this card! You've colored the image beautifully, the flowers are well-placed, and I like the twine and other trims you've used. Great distressing, too! Glad you shared it with us in Mo's Challenge.
