Don't Sweat It

I made this card for a "Special Friend's" birthday.  She has the card (and really loved it) so I am posting it to my blog now.  The image is a From The Heart digital image.  I printed it on X-Press It Blending Card and cut it out with MFT's Circle Stax 1 and Circle Stax 2 die-namics for the black mat.  I sponged SU Bashful Blue ink around the image while it was still in the die.   I colored the image with Copics and added some Liquid Applique to the candle wax.  The sentiment is included with the image and was cut with a Spellbinder's die and also sponged with Bashful Blue ink.  I added some black grossgrain ribbon and bow.   The borders are punched with an EK Success punch.  The chicken wire is from MFT's Distressed Background Blocks and is stamped in SU Basic Gray ink.
 I used MFT Electric Red, Black Licorice and Smooth White CS. The check DSP is from my stash.   Here is the inside of the card printed with an included sentiment (except for the Happy Birthday).  I added a small strip of the DSP.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.
Happy Stamping,
