O for Ombre

Good Morning All,

Well I am back from holiday, we had a wonderful time with the family in the South of France, the weather was very hot, the insects were biting, but we still managed to visit the places you should see while on the Cote d'azur, St Tropez, Nice, Monaco, Monte Carlo, Antibes and see how the other half live with their enormous yachts and cruisers!!!  We had a super villa with a swimming pool so we were able to have some lovely lazy chill-out days around the pool with plenty of BBQ's.

Anyway back to today and to our new challenge over on Alphabet Challenge blog, where this week our lovely Mari has chosen the theme of:

O for Ombre
(Graduating shades of a single colour) 

I used shades of blue from an American Crafts pad, added a dp from my stash, die cut swirl, die cut flower, sentiment and blue liquid pearls.

Do take a look at the challenge blog to see some great inspiration from the rest of the DT.
