After colouring it using Promarkers I added borders made using Spellbinders classic ric rac dies to the top and bottom before matting and layering onto purple and then white card.

Anemone


   The theme for this fortnight's challenge at Crafty Cardmakers is birthdays.
   I matted pale green pearlescent card onto purple mirri and white card. To make the flower design I used Sheena Douglass' Adorable Anemone dies and stamps from the full bloom set. I stamped and cut several layers to build up a decoupaged image colouring them using Promarkers and added some flourishes cut from black card. The sentiment was also cut from black card using Tattered Lace's happy birthday swirl die.
