Floral Birthday

I'm not usually one for pastels, but this is a birthday card for my mother-in-law, so i thought I would go for it. The card base is 3 1/2"x5" and I used some cardstock from the Luxury Stack by DCWV. I wrapped it with some sheer purple ribbon. The flower is cut from Florals Embellished at 4." I used pop-dots to adhere the yellow and pink layers for some added dimension. I added some purple gems and cotton candy Stickles to the flower to bling it up. I stamped my senitment on some purple cardstock, using purple hydrangea ink by Tsukineko. The stamp is by Scrappy Moms Stamps. I trimmed it to fit and made the puple cardstock into a banner. I then used some pop-dots to create a wave in the banner and finished it off with some green pearls.

I made this card for the following challenges:


  1. Your mother in law will love the card. I like all the layering you did to the flower.

    Hope you will stop by when you get a chance to see my new cards.
