I still have checks left!

I saw this image over at Bugaboo stamps and it reminded me so much of a good friend - this is just the type of thing she would say, so I had to get it and use it for her Birthday card.


I coloured the image with ProMarkers and the papers are Pink Petticoat - Hydrangeas, I love the Pink Petticoat paper collections because there is always a plain paper to match the patterned ones.  The scalloped border was cut with an X-Cut border punch and I have added a row of little pearls along the edge.  The pearls, flowers, ribbon, feather and heart pin are all from my stash.

I have decorated the inside of my card to complement the front:
