Marilyn's Birthday Card

Good morning crafty friends,
I just wanted to share a quick post of a card I made for a friend of mine. She is turning 80 and going back to Michigan. SOOOO another dear friend decided we should get together and celebrate before she goes back home.
Here is a close up. I was trying to show the flowers. They started out as plain white. I inked them with some Butterscotch Chalk Ink so the “tips” had some color. Then I hit them with a little bit of Stickles. The leaves were punched from the same PRIMA paper that the background matte is. It was double sided and had a green leafy print on the back. So I inked them with some Chestnut Roan.

The finished card size is 5.5 x 5.5. I used the following to create it.

Bazzill cardstock in White, Lt. Sky and Pollen (Yellow)
The flourish in the background is from the Flourished Baroque Elements Cut File Set
The Flowers are also new soon coming files from PCW.
The Butterflies, leaves and photo corners are from punches.
The patterned paper is from PRIMA

Lastly, the Sentiment is from Psalm 91: 14-16. If you would like the free jpg version of this, you can click the add to cart button and get it for free :)
