Here is another card that I created quite a while ago and didn’t make it for publication. It’s a darling digital image from Tiddly Inks called Always the Flower Girl. The image was printed with a Laserjet Printer on a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with a Petite Oval Nestabilities die and colored with Copic Markers (Dress: YG01, YG03, YG17   Skin: E50, E51, E53   Hair: E97, E99, E09, E18   Thistles: V12, V17, Lavendar Spica Pen, G21, G26, G28   Ground: YG21, YG23, YG17, E30, E31, W3, W5    Sky: B0000, B000, B00). The image was adhered to a piece of black cardstock that had been cut and embossed with a Label 18 Nestabilities die and the edges of the oval were paper pierced.

A 2 1/4″ x 3 15/16″  piece of Echo Park Walk in the Park patterned paper was adhered over a 3 15/16″ x 5″ piece of the same paper pack. The bottom corners were rounded before the paper was stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of black cardstock.  White Crochet Lace was adhered underneath the paper strip and gold organdy Ribbon was tied above it before the layers were adhered to the card base, a 4 3/8″ x 11″ piece of Solar White cardstock folded in half.

The image layers were adhered to the card base with dimensionals. Wild Orchid Crafts Flowers were added to the lower left corner of the image. A sentiment from Friendship Notables 2 was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, cut out and adhered to the lower right corner. A button was tied to the ribbon bow with embroidery floss and parts of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl were added to the upper left corner and underneath the flowers.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.
Hugs and smiles
