My grandmothers birthday card

Hi everyone! Today I am showing you the birthday card I made for my grandmother, she turned 90 last week and we had a surprise birthday party for her on Saturday. She is a lot of fun and doing very well for her age, she still lives by herself (and her fat pomeranian Pritzi), walks all over the town and has a great sense of humor. Love ya Grandma Eisley! Oh, and Leslie, if you are reading this, you asked me on my last Bella post how I get the stickles around my image so neat. I apologize but I couldn't find anyway to email you back but all I do is follow the indention from my spellbinders die. And if the stickles is colored I do color the edge of the image with a matching copic as the stickles tends to shrink as it dries. Hope that helped!

I thought she might like this image by Stamping Bella called Lulu loves Poppies. She is colored with copics and prisma pencils, paper is MME and flowers are prima. I have added some stickles to the center of the flowers for a little bling and used a paper punch for the scalloped borders. Ok, make sure you check back Friday for my next Stamping Bella card!
