Lavinia Challenge 7 - Add A Flower

I've made this card for a friend who is just about to turn 50 (good job she doesn't read my blog), we were neighbours as children and our Mum's are still neighbours now, and great friends too. It also fits the challenge on the Lavinia Challenge blog this month, which is Add A Flower. My scene was made using various shades of browns and oranges in Adirondack, and a little spiced Marmalade distress ink for the edges and the flowers. I cut the design out using a grand nestie, then used the next size up to cut a matt in brown. I then place it onto an 8x8 white card base, I considered adding Happy Birthday and 50, but changed my mind and have left it blank. I finished by adding some glitter to the wings and stars.



I am also going to enter this into the following challenges:

Inspire me Fridays - Anything Goes
Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything Goes
Lady Anne's Challenges - Anything goes Stamp Challenge
My Time To Craft - Autumnal Colours
My Craft Creations - Stamped or Digi Images

Thanks for taking the time to look, and your and comments which are always appreciated.
