TT challenge card-blue

Taken from the Twilight Tuesday blog:

Blue. Edward loves Bella in blue.

“That color blue looks lovely with your skin,” he said, watching me. I was surprised; I looked down, flushing, of course.” Bella Swan, Twilight, pg 148.
So this week the challenge is simple… create anything you want focusing on the color blue. Does it have to be Bella’s blue, no. Just blue. Twilight related? Well, hopefully, but that’s up to you.

Comment challenge… What’s your favorite color to wear and why? Are there any colors that you just hate wearing?

Playing along with the Twilight Tuesday challenge once again. As you would have read above it's all about the colour blue. OK, so I cheated and added a little cream and brown to it, but hey, I don't mind if you don't ;-) not really sure how this one relates to Twilight, I suppose I could have added an appropriate Twilight message but I need to use the card for something else, or I could stretch my imagination and come up with something deep about butterflies,and their symbolism and how they would relate to the story but that's not really me, so it just is.
As to the comment portion on colours I like wearing, that one is easy. I mainly like more earthy and autumnal tones, especially in winter but that can change depending on my mood. I also tend to wear quite a bit of black or white, both such clean colours that compliment what ever you put them with and on the odd occasion I love to lash out with red. And of course you can never go past the old blue denim jeans, I think they are a fave with lots of people. A colour I will not wear is sage green, makes me look like I'm about to throw up or something, ewww, not that I don't like the colour, it just doesn't like me.

It's a little hard to photograph the pretty shimmer on the wings of the butterfly, they look a little washy.

Hi Susy, thanks for your nice comment on my snowman card over at the Cuttlebug spot. Just popped over here to check out your blog and this card is absolutely GORGEOUS. I love the colors you chose and the layout is beautiful.
