FF Challenge Blue

Here is my entry for the Blue challenge.
I have chosen to do a Fat Page. I am involved in a number of swaps and this is one of them I have to swap a Fat Page once a month.
I have used - free blue xmas background in turquoise, stamped an inspirational tag using Versa Colour Royal Blue, used stickles on the hydrangea and put navy ric-rac and fibres through the tag hole.
the stamp reads:
'Kind hearts are the garden
Kind thoughts are the root
Kindwords are the blossoms
Kind deeds are the fruit'

John Ruskin
What is a Fat Page?
A fat page starts as a 4"x4" square of card, you leave a 0.5" margin down one side for the recipient to put their own holes in, you then decorate in a similar way to an ATC, on the reverse you can decorate and give details about your Fat Page. I have made an album to contain my own Fat Pages and ones that I recieve.
This Fat Page will go into my album.
