After coloring with these Copic markers, I trimmed the rose background to allow for the double scallop bottom, and added pearls on a SU corner punch. If you look closely, you can notice the SU classy brass embossed flower on the pink circle punch that holds the sentiment. Happy stamping!

This picture shows the matching daisy on the inside of the card and on the envelope. I simply off-stamped a portion of the daisy and colored with Copics to match the front card design. It adds so much to the overall card when the receiver thinks you went the extra mile to match everything perfectly --- and you did!
These are the Copic markers used. As always, remember to outline your image with warm gray to give it a nice shadow. The sentiment is from CHF, Silhouette Blooms II. This was just too fun! Thanks for visiting and have a spendiferous day!

It's a bit hard to see, but the close-up picture shows glitter pen accents on the flower, tipped with a pale pink Copic Marker on the flower petals. I also used a SU corner punch to border the entire card with silver thread. The pattern for the Standard Stationery Portfolio is shown below. Go forth --- make many many many! Enjoy!

I created a scallop edge embellishment using my SU corner rounder, although their new scallop edge punch is definitely on my shopping list! Add a few crystals, tie on a sheer ribbon, add sentiment with small jump ring -- and stand back and say "Voila"!
