A blue flower for autumn

My small garden lot is slowly getting ready for frost nights, some mornings have been very chilly. I've bought some flower bulbs and planted them so hopefully there'll be some tulips, crocuses and grape hyacints when spring comes. I went for blue and white colours and the thought hit me, are there any blue autumn flowers? The card got one!

Challenges:
ATCAS: Cuddly
Cute Card Thursday: Dies and Punches
Pixie's Snippets Playground: Use Snippets
Penny Black Saturday Challenge: Brown, Blue and White

Materials used:
Penny Black mouse stamped with black Memento ink and coloured with Promarkers.
I used the same blue Promarkers to colour a white snippet, it was punched with a MS punch.
The brown card stock and Panduro designer paper were in my snippet folder waiting to be used.
The circle was from a cotton pad package.

Thank you so much for visiting! Enjoy the weekend sweeties!

Love and hugs
Maarit

  5. Super cute and cuddly image Maarit. Great design with fussy-cutting and having the image extend outside the circle. Thanks for joining us at ATCAS.

  10. That mouse is too stinkin cute. And I really like the punched piece. I never would have though of doing just a snippet instead of going across the whole card. I will definitely have to try that.

  13. Oh so sweet Maarit! Love the image of course and the vivid blue reminds me of Gentians, but I think they're more of a Spring/Summer flower.

    Hugs, Di xx
