My First GDT card

This is my very first card for Whoopsi Daisy Challenge blog  as a Guest Designer for six months.  I am so pleased to have the opportunity to design cards for them using Whoopsi Daisy Digi Stamps they are fabulous images.  My 7yr old granddaughter loves them so i have made a few cards with them for her to display in her bedroom.  I won't be around for a week or so as Claire and family will be here and I am so looking forward to spending time with them all especially the boys.

Card Recipe

I used a Whoopsi Daisy image from sheet 371
Backing paper is from stash
The ribbon is from stash and the sentiment tag i got from ebay ready cut and not sure which die it's from, so if anyone knows the name of it i would love to know.
The flowers are handmade using a technique that my sister Rita showed me.
I also used  Macarena corner die by Memory Box.
Coloured with copic ciao pens.

Thank you for passing by and looking any comments left are greatly appreciated.

  15. Hi Joan,
    This is so fabulous what a gorgeous card.
    Thank you for your comment on the diva blog. ref the medium I use, I used copics to colour the girls , but to draw around the girls to get a bit of depth I used a fleximarker called soft Aqua , thats only because my copic grey o1 has run out.
    I have a huge selection of promarkers my first choice I bought them myself last Christmas , before that I didnt coulor I just used printed toppers from Cd's. I have recently been given
    ( a present from Dad) a set of 72 copics and they are fabulous, so nice to work with as they are like a paintbrush, a bit like the fleximarkers ,only richer colours Nice to be working with you I have followed you for a while now , love your creations Hugs Elaine
