Canvas Art Card

This card I made for my niece who is turning 13 and is really great at Art. I wanted to make a card that represented some art work. I used the ribbon on the edge of the card to make it look like it was a frame on the "canvas". My DH helped me with the concept since he too is artistic and then once I had the idea it all came together very quickly.

Base 5.5 x 4.25
Brown ribbon / green rhinestone
Stamps: Butterfly from Anna Griffin Flora Collection
Inks: Tim Holtz Distressed Ink in colors Iced Spruce, Dusty Concord, Peacock Feathers on the "Art"
Shaded Lilac: "You Color my World" from the Simply Everything -Pink by Design stamp
Memento Ink: Tuxedo Black / Cocoa Rich
Pink by Design Stamps: 1,3,th are from the High Shool set
Happy Birthday from the Mini Wrapper
I also used my markers to color in the art
