Aged to Perfection

This is my Aged To Perfection card:

This card is being entered into the following challenges:
Kaboodle Doodles - tribute to an older person
Love to Create Challenge - make your own flowers
De Creatieve Zebra - Anything Goes

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.
