TRR #51 Feeling Blue

I hope everyone is doing well!  Just asking because the theme this time over at The Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog is "Feeling Blue".  Your not supposed to feel blue - you just make something wonderful using blues (with a touch of green).  We're also asking that you add some ribbon and flowers.   The inspiration photo was chosen by Sarah Ingle aka Lazy Daisy blog.  Sarah is a C&S gal so I am anxious to see what she will do with this one.  Normally you think flowers... Ribbon Reel... beautiful paper roses right?  Well I thought I'd do something a little different to meet the "flowers" requirement - I colored some!  

I colored up these beautiful hydrangea from Serendipity Stamps and added some pretty ribbon reel trims including organic cotton stripe ribbon, and natural button twine from May Arts.  I can't wait to start seeing some flowers in my yard - I've never had much luck with these so I will stick with the paper kind - I think they're almost as lovely as the real thing.

I hope you'll get your blues on and join us!  You might even win a mini shopping spree at The Ribbon Reel!
