Basket of Flowers

This is a 4 1/2"x6 1/4" card. I used a textured black cardstock for the base. I wrapped it with an aqua ribbon. The flower basket is from the Wedding cartridge, cut at 3" from kraft cardstock. I added some dimension to it with markers and chalk. I added a couple of gems to the blue flowers with my iRock and pop-dotted it to the card. The labels are Nesties, I embossed the aqua one with the Swiss Dots folder. I stamped my sentiment onto the kraft label and adhered them to the card. The rest of the flowers are Primas and I sprayed them with coral reef Glimmer Mist. I then added blue pearls to the centers of them and adhered them to the card and flower basket. I thought it would make a nice springtime birthday card. :)
I made this for the following:
