Special Day..

What a beautiful day it is today, hope its the same for you where ever you are :O). I decide to use the free stamps and paper from the Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine again and as I have not done an easel card for a while this is what I came up with :O)....
Recipe

Ivory Card stock
Papers and stamps from magazine above
Template for card shape
Flowers from Lindsay (part of blog candy win) Thank you.
Pearlidoodles
Clear Gems from stash
Memento ink Tuxedo black
Promarkers Pastel Blue, Pink Carnation

I used the template to cut the card shape and for all the papers I used this took quite a while, this certainly was not a 5 minute card lol. Stamped the images and coloured. Added the flowers and sentiment
