Card for a Friend

Hi I hope you are all keeping warm and safe, the snow is now turned really icy it's so slippery and dangerous out there so I stayed in the warm today.
Although I haven't much felt like crafting today, don't know why after getting all that new stash yesterday............... you would think I would be raring to go, it must be the cold weather getting to me.
But I did make this card a couple of days ago for a friend overseas.
To make this card I used ;
DP and CS from DCWV
Hydrangeas from Prima
Gem and Glitter Brad from Doodlebug Designs
Ribbon from American crafts
Tim Holtz Distress ink
The stamp is Paper inspirations and I used SU bordering blue ink to stamp with.
Artfulinkables Challenge Monochromatic
The Creative card crew challenge Distressing
One stop craft Challenge Something Beginning with B for me its Blue
Corrosive Challenge Two of you favourite things mine is flowers and ribbon
Creative Belli Challenge Glitter & gems
Stamping Vacation Challenge - Pick 3 challenge from the theme list my theme is Blue I choose Ribbon, Patterned paper & card stock , from the list

Love your blue themed card though it doesn't feel "blue" at all but very special. Lot the crystal dotted "i"! Very nice touch!

Thank you so much for playing along with the PICK 3 Challenge!
