Fussy and Fancy Challenge #101

Good Friday Morning!!

Today is my first official post as a design team member for the Fussy and Fancy Challenge blog!!!

Our theme for this challenge is "Black and Blue"!  I was instantly intrigued by this theme...I don't usually work with this combination of know I'm a pink girl!!

So a few thoughts went running through my head!  When shopping with my best friend Di I found this black and blue glass dish and started thinking about a birthday card for my crafty friend Christine...who is banned from my blog until I give her this next week! She'll be proud of me because I actually used my Prismas which I'm not really strong with!!  I went back into my classes by Dena Concienne at the Art Studio and did a refresher.  That's the beauty of these classes...once you've paid for them you have unlimited viewing!!!  And let me tell you Dena is an amazing teacher!!

Here is what I came up with...
