Floral birthday card

Good Morning all, i hope you are having a good week, especially for those of you amid half term. 

So today I am sharing the second card i made for my Sister in law, this one is for my parents to give her.   Luckily my SIL enjoys colour as much as i do so i dug out one of my favourite My Minds Eye paper pads. 

7x7 white card blank. Turquoise, olive & magenta cardstock to match the colours in the paper.  After matting the paper onto turquoise and gluing to the blank i die cut a frame, topper and birthday sentiment.  Die cutting lots and lots of cornflowers i then built up the flowers, very time consuming, but worth it.  A little butterfly and turquoise pearls to finish. 

Close up of the flowers, each flower has at least 6 layers, but the big one 10 layers with all the 'petals' teased apart to add the frill that real cornflowers have.   I find it therapeutic to sit and make up flowers of an evening in front of the tv.  

A second card I made for the box. 

Items used:
My Minds Eye - Kate & Co 'Cambridge Court' papers
Sue Wilson - cornflower die set
Sizzix Butterflies - 659971
Mama Elephant - union square die set
