Birthday card for daughter

It's Melanie's birthday today, so I made a card using one of my all time favourite stamps from WOJ:  Fall Willow with grapes.

I really love this really pretty little stamp, which I coloured with copic markers from Wendy at Stamps and Memories, who also supplied the spica pens, the nestabilities and the MS leaf punch.  It's hard to see the sparkle on a photograph but it's definitely there irl!  It's quite a simple layout as everything else is busy, busy, busy.  The ribbon, the papercellar papers and some of the Prima flowers are from Hobbycraft, and the beautiful little grape and leaf charms, the pearl brads, and the glimmer mist on all the flowers come from Jill at The Hobby House

 The little grape charms and the leaves were coloured with copics to match the image, which is easier to see on the detail picture, and I also used the Papercellar dps for the insert.

I'm entering this one in the ABC colour challenge on the docraft website, as the theme is A for Amethyst.  Thanks so much for looking at my blog, and for any comments you would like to leave.

xx Jill
