A Gift for You from Sweet Mariko

Hi Peeps!   Hope you all had a nice and crafty weekend.

Another cutie by Sister Stamps.  This is Mariko who I had so much fun inking up with Copics.   Can you tell I love flowers?      The more the better.   LOL. 
Other ingredients:  Spellbinder dies, washi paper from Japan, flowers by Wild Orchid and Inky Impressions, leaf punches by Punch Bunch, and a bead pin which I made.


Here's a close-up of the bouquet of flowers......
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Saturday Challenge - Challenge 197 "Gifts".
Wags and Whiskers - Challenge 85 "Birthdays"
Incy Wincy Designs - "Make it Girly"
Delightful Challenge - "Birthday"

Thanks for stopping by.   Enjoy your week.
