Birthday Card for Sue

I made this card for my friend Sue who celebrates her 60th birthday this week.  The Magnolia stamp was a Christmas gift from Andrea which I coloured with Copics.  I used a Nellie die to cut the scalloped shape and the sentiment is a LOTV rubber stamp.

The leaves were made with a Martha Stewart punch and the flowers are from Wild Orchid (all of them were a Christmas gift again from my lovely daughter Andrea - I have been really spoiled!).  The papers are Cosmo Cricket and I used pale pink Making Memories paint on the edge of the background paper before adhering to a piece of plain co-ordinating card.  I used Stardust Stickles on the wings and some 25mm pale pink double sided satin ribbon and pretty pink loopy string, all from Ribbon Girl.  I will enter this card into Friday Sketchers No 134 Challenge - Claudias sketch.
