What Colour Do You Love?

Hello Everyone! Today is the beginning of another wonderful challenge over at Card Crafter's Circle. It's to do a monochromatic card. The design team has a beautiful rainbow to share with you so do pop over to check them out and to be inspired to join us! Click HERE!
For my part I've chosen the colour blue....because that's my favourite! I've coloured this wonderful young lady with my prismas and added some dark blue marker to the wrist corsage for a deeper colour.  I inked the edges with windflower blue ink and matted it to some cardstock from Stampin' Up.  The lovely patterned paper is from K&Company and the pearl flourish is from Recollections.  I created a bit of a corsage for her of flowers from my collection layered over some ribbon that I glued down in folds.  I added a little circle tag from Portafolia and for a final touch I added some rhinestones to the corners and one to her hairbow.
I'm going to be giving this card to a sweet young lady who's graduating from grade 7 and heading into the big world of High School.  She's going to have a fun ceremony and dance at her school and has a dress all picked out to wear and I thought this was fitting.  Plus she loves blue, just like me!
I don't know if you've noticed, but I do love designing with a primary colour often.  How about you? Do come join us in our challenge, there are many colours in the rainbow to choose from!  This week we are sponsored by the talented Stamp-N-Doodle and they are putting up a prize of two of their fabulous images for the winner!
Now for a final pic.....
Thanks for dropping by! I pray for each of you a day with vibrant colour!

This is a beautiful card, Jennifer. I especially like your treatment of the flowers and ribbon on the side. It does look like a lovely corsage. I am smiling at how similar many of the DT cards look despite our not seeing each other's until this morning when the blog went live. Guess that image brought out the lovely bling, flowers and ribbon in all of us. Well done, teemie; you made me proud!!!
