The SCD Blues (Oh and orange and brown)

Where has the weekend gone, one minute its Friday and I am enjoying a lovely evening at my cousins sons wedding. Saturday cropping all day and time you blink it is Sunday evening and! OMG I must do my SCD tag challenge. Today is also my Auntie Nerta's birthday so HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Auntie Netta.
I found it quite tuf this week. What to do with those colours?. In the end I used it as an excuse to use my newest stamps, I confess to buying these recently when I realised that Blades in London is do-able in my lunch break (now that is very dangerous for my purse LOL). I inked the tag with DI parchment, walnut stain and stamped in blue with my text stamp. , then I cut out a square of blue paper with a very delicate background design, I inked the edges with spiced marmalade and stamped my tree with dried marigold and added some bling to make a bling bling tree. Oh and punched out an edge in orange card then added a small sparkly blue butterfly. I am quite pleased with the result.
