Shabby Chic Unity Flowers

I was asked to make a card by a Friend for their Auntie and who loves flowers and the lovely Flower stamp from the Adventures in Happiness kit which is available from Make the Day Special immediately sprang to my mind. I love the simplicity of the design of these flowers and the fact they can be embellished with buttons and gems to make them look different every time.

To make the card, I used a square card blank and cut a section from the front at an angle. I covered the card with the Papermania Rose Garden papers and added a strip of ribbon down the cut edge of the front of the card.
I stamped and coloured my flowers and cut them out with a Nesties shape which I matted on to a scalloped circle cut from pink card. This was then mounted to the card front with foam pads making sure I only stuck them where they would not show!
I embellished my flowers with a button and gems, added a bow and a sentiment from the paper pack and some letters to spell out Auntie which are also in the pack and a couple of punched butterflies.
Have a lovely Friday!
