On Your Special Day

 Here is an aperture card I have made using a Fredericka digital stamp image from the Polkadoodles Fredericka CD.  I have coloured the image in with various shades of purple Graph'it pens.  I have fussy cut around the image - not so easy with the hair but I got there in the end.
 The backing papers I have used are from the Perfect Papercrafting Companions CD from Creative Papercrafting World (general and Christmas CD).  I have used some Spellbinders dies to cut out the aperture/make the frame and make the mats for the image to go on.
I have finished the card off with a Joanna Sheen banner die-cut, flowers made from scraps of paper from making the card and using a beautiful die that was free with the Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine this month, silver pearl heart pins, silver pearls for the centre of the flowers, ribbon bow and a Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
