3 Flowers Birthday Wishes - Craft for Life Card

This is the second card Joanne designed for us to make at our August SU! Stamper's 10 Make & Take evening. I've made mine slightly differently - Joanne used a white card base and SU! green glitter for her flower centres but I've made a Pretty in Pink card and I used silver glitter for my flowers. This card will be donated to the UK Cancer Research Craft for Life campaign.

The small flower stamp is from the Vintage Vogue set. The stems were hand drawn with a Mellow Moss marker pen. We rock and rolled the flowers, inking first with Pretty in Pink ink and then rock and rolling in Perfect Plum ink. We cut out the flowers and shaped them a bit by running an embossing stylus around the flower centre while it was in the palm of our hand. We added some doodling around the white panel with a Perfect Plum marker pen and sponged some Pretty in Pink ink around the edge. A sentiment and a bow for the flower stems finished off the card.
