I think you'd need to use a whole lot more blues to qualify for Get Funky's "January Blues" challenge where we're looking for a mainly blue project this time.
Your card is lovely but doesn't really fit with the theme this month - it would be fab if you'd have another think and share a Truly Blue project with us
