To make this card I used a square card as a base and layered card and paper .5cm smaller each time to  make the correct layers of card then paper.
I layered a rectangle of layered paper and card to one side of the card, I then fastened a ribbon over the card.
Printed out the image on Xpress blending card and coloured with my copics then layered onto blue card and affixed to the card.

I airbrushed the flowers with blue and grey to get matching colours, then arranged with leaves at the side of my image, I used wire and a pencil to create the wired loops.
