Happy Birthday, Christine

Flourishes is celebrating the birthday of the amazingly talented Christine Okken and we've been asked to make a special card to show how much we appreciate her work, and to help celebrate her birthday.  I chose Flourishes Sweet Peas stamp set for my card.  First, I inked up the large image with Memento Gray Flannel ink, stamped it once onto scrap paper, then onto blending card.  Then I stamped the smaller image with Memento Tuxedo Black onto blending card and die cut it with Spellbinders Labels Four.  I coloured the larger image with light copic colours, cut it into a rectangle and layered it onto green cardstock.  I coloured the smaller image with slightly darker colours, added the sentiment from Flourishes Tag Lines and layered that onto green cardstock also.  The background papers are from Papermania's Capsule Collection, layered onto green cardstock and I added half a paper doily.  Some pale blue pearls in the top right corner and it was finished.

Copic Colours used were:  B0000, B000, B00, B02, G20, G21, G24.

Thanks for coming to visit!
