A Special Happy Birthday to my Sister Amy

Happy Birthday Amy, hope you have a lovely relaxing day, with Michael waiting on you hand and foot!

Here is the card I made for my Sister's birthday

I have used Penny Black's Star Inspired stamp 4156K available here, Delicate Pattern 40-047 available here and Special Time 4174H available here.

The background was stamped with Memento Ladybug Red ink, the sentiment was then stamped onto a separate piece of cardstock and cut to match the embossed frame. The frame is an embossed Fancy Frame from Sizzix by Tim Holtz, that has then been inked with Memento Baby Pink and Ladybug Red and cut out. This has then been mounted onto foam pads and layered over the sentiment and added to the main card blank.

A satin ribbon was then attached to the side of the card. The flower was stamped onto a separate piece of card stock, airbrushed with Copic marker RV17 and shadows added directly onto the image with the marker pen. This was then cut out and mounted onto the ribbon with dimensional glue. The centre pearl was coloured with the same Copic marker and the remaining pearls placed around it.

Thank you for visiting me today and for all your lovely comments.
