A Floral Wreath For My Mam

Happy New Year folks!

Today is my Mam's birthday so I'm able to share the card I made using some new dies I got for Christmas...

I die cut the flowers, leaves (Intricut)  and letters (Die-namics) using the same linen textured card as the base card, then I coloured them using pastel shades of pro-markers. I also added some flat-backed pearls for the centre of the flowers.

The happy birthday wording (X Cut) was cut using gold mirri-card which I also used to 'shadow' the 'Mam' letters. Finally I added some gold peel-off dots so the gold theme pulled the design together.

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:

Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge#1- die-cuts - TOP PICK!
