Blue Good Luck

Those of you who visit my blog regularly might remember the Good Luck card that I made for my youngest son to give a friend.  When I make these paper pieced cards I always have some letters left over so I have made another to use them up - this time a blue themed card.


I have used one of my favourite Woodware Huge stamps and paper pieced it with some LOTV papers.


I have kept the design the same just adding a few pearls to embellish.
