Quilter's Birthday

My friend Shirley is having a birthday and I thought the perfect image for her card would be from Flourishes Stitched for You stamp set I stamped the image onto X-press it Blending Card and die cut it with Spellbinders Floral Ovals.  After colouring with copics I glued this to red cardstock die cut with a Spellbinders Classic Oval.  I chose the background paper from Kaisercraft's Fine and Sunny DSP 6 x 6 paper pad because I thought it looked like a patchwork quilt, layered this onto red cardstock, cut a piece of yellow chevron paper and layered this also onto red cardstock and attached over the background.  The sentiment is from Flourishes Sweet Violets set and was stamped in red ink onto white cardstock.  I added the white lace and "tape measure" ribbon, then added the stamped image with foam tape.

The Copic Colours I used were:  R22, R24, R27, R89, G24, G28, C1, YG61, YG63, Y21, Y26, RV52, RV 63, RV66, V22, V25, V28, BG11, BG13.
