This image from Bugaboo Stamps is called Stella Birthday - Aged to perfection. It is such a fantastic image to work with. I have coloured her with my copics. I originally intended to colour her hair a warm grey but when looking for that copic I came across my violet ones and just had to use one of those! The background paper is one from Fancy Pants Designs. It comes from a Designer Paper Stack called Beach Babe! I have used Spellbinders Oval Dies and Labels Dies for my image, sentiment and matts.
The flowers are made from Angelina Fibre. I had fused together some Angelina Fibres for another card a month or so ago and had some left over pieces that the colours weren't right at the time. These matched the papers I had chosen so decided I would see if they would work for making some flowers! The Angelina fibres have been die-cut using Mariannes Creatable dies and then shaped into flowers. I am really pleased with how they turned out even though they were a bit fiddly to work with. I am glad that I had made a few other flowers first and had a reasonable idea of construction!
To finish the card, I have added some pearls to the top right hand corner. Lots of older ladies I know like their pearls.
