Everyone Deserves A Fairytale

Hey, here is a card I made with a new stamp from my birthday; it is called Lucy by Kraftin Kimmie Stamps. I made this card with Shabby Tearoom challenge in mind.
I stamped the image in black and coloured her using promarker and copics pens. I also stamped and coloured two little books to add extra. I then cut her into a rounded boarder and inked the edge aqua.
I decided to make an easel card, so after folding the backing so the front stands up, I chose my papers. I backed the card with pink flowers paper and mounted the image on aqua paper. I inked round the edge of the baking card with pale pink ink and edged the papers with pink and aqua respectively. I then built up two flowers for opposite corners with pink and aqua flowers, in the centre of which I mounted a book. To finish the front, I added two sticky swirls which I topped with dark pink, aqua and pale pink velvet crush; I topped these off with rainbow drops.
I then worked on the flat base of my card; I backed it with pale pink card which I edged aqua. I cut out my 'Everyone Deserves A Fairytale' headline and inked this pale pink and aqua. I mounted it on pink, aqua and cream patterned papers and added a crushed velvet strip along the bottom of the pink backing; I then raised this onto the pink backing paper. I added two rainbow drops to the top corners of the pink backing so the front of my card has them to sit against when stood up. I added three more crushed velvet swirls and two flowers to make the base more exciting and finally attached both pieces together. Lovely :)
