It's my Party

The stamp used on this card is another one from Lily of the Valley, which I'm loving at the moment, called "It's my Party"  so apologies if they seem to be on all of my cards at the moment!

The image was coloured with Promarkers and then the skirt and tiara were highlighted with Moonglow Starburst Stains.  I have used the mountain lavender gold from the icicle creek set.

The tag is one of Magnolia's and from the heavenly tags collection, this was also coloured with Promarkers and a sentiment stamped in the centre.

The main cardstock and image were edged with Tim Holtz distress inks - milled lavender and dusty concord.

The papers, gems, button, ribbon and beads were all from my stash.  The silk flower was made from colouring a piece of silk with a Promarker, cutting out a circle and then doing a running stitch around the outside which was pulled tight to form the flower.  The button was then sewn on in the centre to complete the flower.
