Friend's Birthday card

Okay this card was a challenge from the very start!  lol  I was running out of time so my first challenge was getting it done and mailed (which did not happen on time)!  I knew right off what image I wanted to use because this friend not only loves Magnolia stamps, but adores bears.  I also knew I would use purple as this is her favorite least fav to scrap!  lol  So it started off with another challenge of colors.  I am so not a purple person.  I figured while it seemed this card was a challenge from the very start, I would make it even more and see just how many different embellies I could do on it and still have it not be to ugly.  I mean, after starting with purple, uphill is the only place I could go!  lol  Just teasing all you purple lovers out there.  Anyway, I used copics to colors her.  I found a sketch I liked but knew I would not get it done in time to enter their challenge but used it anyway.  I did use three of my new dies from Whimsy....the little bar thing in the upper left corner, the half circle with the Birthday sentiment, and the little ticket.  The paper lace border and the scalloped oval are Nesties.  I inked all the edges and then sewed. Added lots of flowers and pearls.  The image is popped for added dimension  an well as the ticket.  Topped everything off with some stickles and shimmerz.  I knew she would be surprised I made her a purple card so did not want to post until after she received it.  I was so happy when she said she loved it.....even tho it was late.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  May God bless each of you in a very special way.
