And relax

Good Afternoon ladies, hope you are all well. Sorry I have been so bad at visiting your blogs over the last few days, I have been ill, still feel awful but going to hop in to the bath in a bit and relax :) it' s hard to beleive i could still be tired I ended up going to bed at 7 last night. 

Any how I have made this card for my parents to give to my brother Oliver for his birthday he turns 27 soon (at least I think so lol) 

I followed a sketch for this card on Sketch and Stamp. 

The papers I have used are by Kaisercraft I bought them on my recent visit to Sir Stampalot, I love them. The ribbon is from Quixotic cards and the image is from Lili of the Valley. I have coloured him with copics (colours listed below) I have edged the image using green and black ink. The little gems are actually ones I bought for nail art but they have sort of migrated their way to my craft stash. I used my leaf punch to add a little something to the flower, sometimes i think they can look a bit out of place on their own. Also I don't think you can see it very well but I have stamped 'it's your day' in to the bottom left hand corner of the card.

Clothes and hat - YG63,YG67, E33, E35, E37, C3,C5,C7
Newspaper - W3, W5, W7
Grass - G05,G07,G17
Skin - E00,E21
