My First Easel Card




I needed to make a very special birthday card for a friend who is celebrating a big birthday next month. I also wanted to use this beautiful Whiff of Joy stamp that I recently won in a blog candy (thank you Paula). The stamp has been inked with Memento and coloured with Copic markers and a silver Sakura pen. The sentiment is from a very old K&Co kit but I think it was made for this image. The stamp used on the base of the card is from HOTP.
The papers are from Anna Griffin and Basic Grey.
The shaped panels have been cut on my Cricut using the Accent Essentials cartridge.
I was also sent these gorgeous flowers which I've sprayed with perfect pearls and water.
The ribbons, pins and gems are all from my stash.
This card is for the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge this week where the theme is Flower Power.
