Gingersnap and Tag Tuesday All In One

Well, I'm doing it again.... always feel a little guilty, but I've combined two challenges today.  The first is at Gingersnap Creations, where the color challenge is Shades of Blue, and the second is the Tag Tuesday challenge at Kard Krazy, where Louise has challenged us to use Postage on our tags.  Luckily I had blue postage, LOL!!

This card uses lots of little bits that I had in my image stash - the hydrangea is stamped on blue mulberry paper, the butterfly is embossed on vellum and colored with Copics on the reverse, and the music is spritzed with blue Glimmer Mists.  That's some old postage I've used - 37 cents! - that I've been hoarding 'cuz I liked the flower images.  There's some old K and Company paper ribbon across the top.

Hope you can join in these two fun challenges!  And don't forget about the blog hops... Cornish Heritage Farms' Summer Fling and Gingersnap Creations Mad Hatter Day - click on the images in my sidebar on the right for more info.  There's still time to win fabulous candy!
