Penelope Pansy's a bit blue

Penelope Pansy was this fortnight's giveaway on Lacy Sunshine's Challenge #30 to add flowers and as I love all the Flower Pot Pretties I just had to join in. This card is also for Kit and Clowder's April Challenge "Blue" and love all the blue on this one!

I decided to go for a magic card again as I haven't done one for a while now and used some pearlescent card for a change. I actually have a box full of this stuff in a range of colours and rarely use it, but thought it added a nice touch to this card without over-powering it.

And this is the inside. I remembered to decorate the top flap inside this time as well!
