Belated Happy Birthday & A Blog Update
Today's card features a retired Stampin' Up wood block set. A die cut strip is topped with some laced and the image panel is popped up over it. The sentiment is stamped on a die cut fish tail banner and some purple paper flowers anchor the straight end of the banner.
I watercolored this sweet girl with distress ink and markers. The image was die cut and matted on a scalloped mat. Each scallop was accented with a white gel pen for added interest.
Popping the image panel up just a little adds a touch of dimension and helps the image panel stay level when placed over the lace trim.
