Here is my card for Jan Marie.



I used Moments In Time set for the image and sentiment. The image was colored with Copic markers. I designed the card with Prima designer papers and the matching cardstock. The card was embellished with the Prima flowers and the lace ribbon. The burgundy flowers and leaves were came from the Prima decorative border but I trimmed to fit for the card. To finish off, I added the silver pearls and the sentiment.
