21 in Pink

This  card  is  one  that  I was  asked  to make a while ago for one  of those  Special  Birthdays  that we like to celebrate.  The request was for it to be in  Pink  and  White with  flowers.

The card  is just an  A4 folded  in half  with  a smaller  pink  panel cut to  leave a  thin border  around the  edge.   The next white layer has been embossed to give a lovely detailed pattern on the card and that again is  slightly  smaller than the  pink layer.

The blooms at the bottom  of the card are  made from a mixture of  four of the borders  cut in pink card, from the  Moroccan Accents and  a  Spiral Blossom 1  cut in white ... and each has a Pearl Brad added to the centres.
I made the  four borders  into two Rosette flowers and used some leaves from the Foliage set of dies.

All the leaves  have been inked very lightly with Victorian Velvet... and the  21 was  hand drawn and cut  then sprinkled with   pink glitter.

But  the card  that was left after  cutting the  borders to make the  flowers was far too  pretty to throw away.

So I added  it in layers  to the  left of the  card  and topped it  along the spine  edge  with some  polka dot  ribbon from my  "Stash"  and added a  small pearl to each of the points.

The  butterfly is a  Martha Stewart  punch and the trail ... and  is from   Want2Scrap 

The small pearls in the top right corner add the finishing touch ... and the card was very much appreciated when handed over.

Hugs xx
