Special person, special flower

The starting point for this was the beautiful patterned paper/card in lovely pastel colours;  I made it into a base card. I've had it in my stash for ages and used it in cards, but never as a card.

I used a Mojo Monday sketch for the design.  While reorganising my die collection I re-discovered a hexagon die I'd forgotten about, and tried out a new freebie layered stamp'n'die set.  Card edges inked.  The flower is also spritzed with silver Shimmer spray, and the stamped sentiment is stamped in grape and heat embossed with silver (I thought), but maybe it was clear (it's come out a purpley silver) ...weird.


I took a close-up to try and capture the subtle shimmer:

Gorgeous card Carol, I love the hexangonals die and the colours you used are lovely - as are those really pretty flowers.

Lovely to see you in the Snippets Playground again - as well as Cuttlebug Mania of course.
