Flower Girl Birthday Card

This was a birthday card I made for my mom.  It didn't turn out quite like I had it in my head but overall I'm pleased with the result.  I know my mom will love it.

The image was a free digi from a great artist in The Netherlands.  You can find this image at:

The card is a standard A2 card base and I used some loose papers I had in my stash for the layering.

Copic Colors Used:  B000, B00, B28, B91, B95, B99, BG01, BG07, BG13, BV11, BV13, BV17, E01, E42, E50, G43, G46, N2, N4, N6, R46, R43, R81, R85, RV00, RV95, RV55, V01, Y28, Y32, Y35, YG00, YG06, YR12, YR15, YR68, and Multiliner 0.5 (pretty much every Copic I have!!)

I also used a Sakura Jelly Roll in white for the highlights on her eyes.

I used some ribbon from American Crafts (actually turned to the wrong side since the muted colors worked better).

The bottom border was punched with Fiskars Daisy Border Punch and the sentiment on the inside was punched using a Fiskars 1.5" circle punch with 2" scalloped circle punch behind it (also from Fiskars).  The sentiment is from the Fiskars Happy Birthday Set (#01-005521).  I used Memento Dew Drop ink in Grape Jelly for the stamping and edge inking.

I used my ATG gun for most of the adhering and some small foam squares to pop her off the card.
