I've used this sweet clear stamp image called Story Time designed by Elisabeth Bell for Belles 'n Whistles. This lovely little lady happily reads her favorite book while resting under a blooming tree.
This pic shows a closer view of my Copic-filled image.
Layers of Bazzill cardstock with flowered paper from a 6x6 Making Memories Flower Patch paper pad form my side open card. Faux stitching provides a contrasting border. A Wyla white ruffled lace strip lies below a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page Daisy Edge punched border. A few black mini brads accent one corner. A sentiment from a Crissy Armstrong Whimsy On Thoughts Sentiments set is topped with a sheer yellow swirl ribbon. KaiserCraft pearl strips are scattered throughout.
Several handmade flowers are made from layered Punch Bunch punches. You'll find Asters, Round Petal Blossoms with a rhinestone center and blue Paper Whites with pearl centers. Punched Birch leaves accent my flowers. All are lightly painted with a layer of Diamond Stickles for super sparkle.
Here's a view of the front of my completed card showing my use of Belles 'n Whistles Story Time, as designed by Elisabeth Bell, surrounded by loads of flowers as she rests peacefully . . .
The inside of my card is decorated to coordinate with the front and contains space for a handwritten note or stamped sentiment . . .
