Happy 40th

Good Evening All,
Hope you are all well.
It's been raining all day here, the good thing about that, there's no need to water the garden.
I would like to share a card with you that was an order. The customer chose the Sassy Studio  image 'Martini Pin Up' which I've had for a while but never used. I've always worried about grounding the image, didn't want it to look as though she was floating mid air. Well it was time to challenge myself. 
I coloured the image in with copics & chalks, I glittered the dress and added glossy accents to the glass, I used a spellbinder die to cut out the image using the out of the box technique to cut out the leg. This was mounted onto a black faux nestie mat with a ribbon positioned to give her something to sit on, wrapping it round the back of the background paper. A spellbinder die was used to cut out a borer that was tucked under the ribbon and the same die was used to cut small pieces that was added to the top of the card.
The sentiment was computer generated and cut out with a spellbinder circle die and mounted onto a SB scalloped circle mat. The flowers were cut out with a mixture of joy craft dies and a punch, these were layered up and a mixture of card candi and viva pearls were added to the centres.
Have a great weekend everyone!
