Flower and Flourish

We've started keeping track of people's birthdays at work.  So, I have taken it upon myself to make cards for everyone.  I have to plan ahead so that we can get them signed by everyone (or nearly everyone) before their actual birthday, but I think I can manage.  I might have to write down our birthady list to keep at home!  This is for a woman who's birthday is coming up in about a week and a half.
 This one is pretty simple, but I like how it turned out.
The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4."  I used white cardstock for the card base.  I cut some dark purple cardstock at 5 3/8"x4 1/8" and more white cardstock at 5 1/8"x3 7/8."  I stamped the senitment in dusty concord Distress Ink, by Ranger, and embossed it with the Cuttlebug folder, Swiss Dots.
The flower and flourish are a Sizzix die.  I inked the edges of the flowers with more dusty concord ink and I inked the leaf with peeled paint Distress Ink.  The leaf is acutally the middle of part of the flourish.  I adhered the flourish to the card, then adhered the end of the leaf down and popped up the rest of it with some foam tape.  I curled up the edges of the flowers and adhered them together, then to the card.  The middle of the flower is a gem from Recollections.

I made this using the color challenge for "Day 39" at 365 Cards.
