January Blues

It's Daring Cardmakers day again and this week's challenge is:

January Blues
You are free to use the title however you want; it could be a "just to cheer you up" or "sorry to hear you're feeling blue" card,  a card with shades of blue as the main colour, or something else inspired by the heading.  Lets chase the January Blues away with some quality time spent getting creative!
 Blue is my favourite colour, but it's not always the easiest colour to craft with - so many shades and tones and they don't always go together very happily.  I usually gravitate towards the turquoise end of the blue spectrum because I love turquoise the best of all, so to make it a bit harder for myself I thought I'd try to stay in the true blue area this time.

Tools and Materials
Silhouette-cut "hello" using one of the Winter Wedding download papers, also
Funky Hand
Multi layered butterfly; Memory Box die
Leaf swirl; Spellbinders die
Small pearls

*This CD is currently on sale for only £1 (while stocks last)

That's it for now, it would be great if you'd join in with us this week, thanks for looking
