Pretty in Blue.....

Hello everyone: This month, at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE, we have a sketch challenge for you to play with so, come and join my teammates and me in the gallery. 
Here it's the sketch and the card I made with it, hope it will inspire you to play along.

This image is from a Power Poppy set called Potted Primroses, the sentiment is from the set too.
I Google'd this pretty flowers to see what colors they come in and I was amazed at the huge array of shades and variations so, I picked the blue ones for my card.
I stamped them onto a die cut piece of Strathmore mixed media paper with Stazon black ink and colored them with SU markers, an aqua painter and Prismacolor pencils. 
Now, about that beautiful green/silver paper.....I save every single piece of pattern paper Marcella Hawley, the owner of Power Poppy, wraps my purchased stamp sets with, I used a piece of one of this papers for my card,  she also always writes little personal notes for us, I've also saved them all. 
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment is from an old Flourishes set called "Sweet Peas", the potted flower from Power Poppy's "Potted Primroses".
I hope you get inspired by the sketch and my card, for more inspiration, hop over THE FLOWER CHALLENGE blog and check out my teammates amazing creations, don't forget to leave them some comment love.
Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

I was going to ask where that paper came from, it's so pretty and it's such an ingenius use of packaging - something I just usually put in the recycling. Gorgeous! Love the blue flowers too. xx
