Handbags and flowers

I made this card for my daughter for her birthday recently.  It took me ages to get started with this as I couldn't decide on the colour scheme or design and had to rush to finish it in time but I'm pleased with the end result.  The handbag stamp and sentiment stamp are both by Lili of the Valley. The main image has been stamped onto a spellbinder die cut from white card and coloured with Promarkers and Mica Powders using a water brush, unfortunately you can't see the shine in the photo it looks better in real life. I edged the topper with some Adirondack Peach Belini. I cut a second spellbinder die in in a shiny teal coloured card and slightly off set it behind the topper to give a shadow effect, and used the same card to back the sentiment.  The background is centura pearl card embossed with white snow Wow Embossing powder and the border is embossed with Teal Wow Embossing powder. Finally it has been matted onto some teal card with white dots. I finished off the card by making some flowers and foliage cut with dies ad coloured with promarkers.
