Blue Bloom Birthday Easel Card

This is the card I made to give to Margaret B at our June card group meeting.  Margaret has been poorly so hasn't been at card group for a few months, she was very much missed and it was lovely to see her back again!

My colour combo is Pool Party, Island Indigo, Night of Navy and Whisper White.  I inked the bloom stamp with Pool Party ink and then added Island Indigo ink using a sponge dauber.  I added some sparkle by dotting some Star Dust Stickles here and there on the bloom.  I popped up the Island Indigo mat layer plus the sentiment label.  I added die cut decorative corners on top of the patterned paper layer to finish the front.

Here's a close up of the bloom.

Here's the bottom of the card plus the envelope.
