This is an older Penny Black stamp called apple blossom hope that I stamped several times to make the layers.I used the inspirational photo from Just Us Girls for colors. I cut out the banner, put the happy birthday on it and reattached. All the flowers and leaves were cut and layered. The flower centers and some of the leaves are a third layer . The image is watercolored and then stickles used on all the shadow areas, flower centers and over the stitching at the ends of the two strips. I used the fleur dis le Spellbinders to attach the image. The dps are from My Minds Eye and the strips are three layers, the middle one is punched with a Fiskars punch.The bow is lovely hand dyed seam binding.The base dp is stitched as well as down the centers of bothof the layered strips strips.Crazy 4 Challenges: Sketch & Birthday
