A Touch of the Blues!!

Hi folks, made this card a couple of days ago and as usual never fits the challenges on the go at the time. Never seem to set out with a theme or follow one, seems to of been the story of my life, take it as it comes except when something exciting is happening (not much of that nowadays) then, I want it happening right now.
Having a browse on the net and suddenly remembered about Sir Stampalots monthly challenge and it fits a treat, must become a follower, the old grey matter isn't always working on four cylinders nowadays and blogger dashboard would kindly remind me wouldn't he! Me organized, ther's always a first time!
