Pretty Penny Black Birthday Card

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
Wow was it hot hot hot today at work - not that I am complaining, and hope that the weather stays like this till Saturday for the wedding.  Last night I finished a birthday card for a dear friend, she is simply mad about Daisy's, so when I went to the Doncaster Racecourse for the craft show I was thrilled to be able to buy three sets of clear stamps on their show offer.  So this is an image from one of those sets, which has the most amazing daisy on it.
I have made an easel card, the base layer is pale lime green and the papers were some freebies with a magazine - sorry do not know the name of them, but they are very delicate and soft.  The ribbon has been coloured with copic, the brad holds the ribbon together on the front of the easel and the large tied bow keeps the easel open.  Little pink pearls to match the brad have been run along the ribbon and a spray of flowers from Wild Orchid and other local shops has been added for that finishing touch.  The image plates have been decorated by distressing with spun sugar distress ink Tim Holtz and over stamping with a Prima leaf scroll.

I have followed the sketch at Mad for Markers

here is a close up of the image, I have used glossy accents to give the little ladybird a raised glassy body.

Here is the inner return image and sentiment
The Sentiment is from My Sentiments Exactly.

I would like to welcome all my new followers and wish you all well in the 200 follower candy.  I will be posting my 300 candy at the end of the current candy.  For those of you that have not yet entered the 200 follower candy you can do so here, thank you to Feline for now advertising my candy too.
