Spots & Stripes - Secret Crafter Challenge

Hi all, firstly I would like to say a huge thank you for all your support for my blog candy and welcome to all the new followers, hope you take some inspiration from all my projects.  You still have time to enter the candy- please click on the link above if you would like to enter.

Onto my card for our challenge over on Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge. This week we would like to see your projects with spots and stripes.  So head on over and join in the fun.
For my card I used a very cute Lilly of the Valley image teamed with a postage stamp sentiment from Whimsy stamps. 
I made this card as a commission and was given full rein and this is what I came up with.  I love to go OTT on the embellishments! I have used crackle paint on the swirl to give it a nice shine and stability.

Copic Colours
RV34, 32, 11
G24, 21, 20
E44, 43, 41, 40
Hair - E27, 25, 31

This is the inside view on the easel card with a space to write a personal message.  Everything has been inked with walnut satin distress inks.  

Close up of the Whimsy sentiment.  I used the matching die cut to cut the image out.  They are easy to use as you get a clear plastic marking guide so you cut achieve a perfect cut.
