Elisabeth Bell "wishes" birthday card

Hello! Another of my new Elisabeth Bell images called Wishes.  I have coloured her up with copics.  The banners are from Whimsy Stamps called celebration circle pennants.  You can buy the dies to cut them out and layer them with frilly bases, but my bank account was looking a bit drab LOL! SO.. I used my spellbinder circle cutter and the smallest of the spellbinder lacey circles for the base.... works for me :0)  my ribbon is from my stash, as is the ribbon slider (I got these in a big lot and sell them at the markets (when I go) for 75c each- I also have the circle diamonte sliders too).  I am trying to get enough stuff collected to open an internet store and try and sell things as cheap as I can :0)  The moonstone brads are WOC I got last year (I bought something like ten jars in one hit to save on postage... but am working my way through them).  The flowers are also WOC, but I didnt have purple ones, so I spritzed my beige ones with glimmer mist, dabbing a darker purple on the edges.  

HINT.... I tend to buy white or cream flowers so I can colour match them to my theme and it limits the amount of space I need with different colours of flowers. I do whole colours by misting them with glimmer mist, but if you just want to highlight the edges of your flowers, spritz with a clear glimmer mist like marshmallow or pearl.... then rather than misting the darker colour, remove the lid and using the straw (that connects to the lid part), dab ever so lightly onto the edges of your flowers... by moistening the flowers with the clear mist first, that allows the darker colour to kind of wick up the flower petal adding a realistic touch :0)

The papers are from my scrap box and are both Magnolia.
