Bouquet birthday card

Hi there,
I was asked to make a card by a friend with no instructions other than lots of flowers.
Hmmm, I tried lots of different colour combinations but couldn't find anything I was happy with. Then I remembered I had some flowers in a vase in the kitchen. My daughter works in a shop which sells cut flowers and when the sell by date is up they get thrown away. So daughter puts some money in the charity box and brings them home for me. The ones I have now are well over a week old and still looking good. Such a waste to throw them.

 The DP is Prima Fairy Belle collection which was freebie in a magazine a couple of years ago.
I used two sheets of similar colour, using one to cut a corner using Spellbinders Curved Corners die
Some texture paste on a Studio 75 stencil with some very pale pink glitter sprinkled over to give some sparkle.
Flowers by Wild Orchid crafts.
The sentiment is PC generated cut out with a SB scallop circle to finish.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
