A card for Jackie

Here is a card I have made for my friend Jackie, its her birthday on 28th June, Happy Birthday Jackie.

I decided to make a circle easel card using a cd as a template and followed the sketch over at Sweet Shop Sketches.

The dotty and stripey backing papers are digi papers from Cuddly Buddly called patchwork orange, the image is a Karens Doodles image coloured in with Promarkers. I then added some glitterations around the edges of the image and backing papers. I have faux stitched on the orange card using a scorbug and then went over the dots with a brown marvey le plume fin tip pen. I have used a Martha Stewart punch on the bottom of stripey paper, added the name Jackie in peel offs and Happy birthday and a balloon. I thought these colours are really summery.

For the stopper I have used an orange Prima flower with a punched stamen in the centre and a Craftwork Cards piece of pearlescent orange card candy on top.

I have also added some lime green and orange pearlescent card candy around the edge of the circle.
