Birhday Flowers

I was feeling lost and mojo-less until I saw the beautiful inspiration photo for this week over at The Challenge. It led me to this beautiful card for my mother-in-law's birthday in early February!


I needed something simple and basically flat because it has to go through the mail and I've found that layers tend to get crushed in the mail (even when I use fun foam!). I'm a clean and simple crafter by nature and necessity! I took the beautiful pink flower from the photo (below) and created a small garden in the left corner. I then heat embossed the sentiment in Princess Gold over the whole panel. It looks pretty flat in the picture, but in person it's absolutely beautiful and shiny! I finished it with a few of my very favorite Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
