This is for the Free For All challenge, which is How Does Your Garden Grow.
I decided to do a tall card. The card base is GP white cs. I used My Mind's Eye dp's, stitched down the seam using a zig zag stitch, plus also stitched 2 lines down the dotted dp. I used the scallop border punch on the long edge. I wrapped hemp around then tied a organdy gold ribbon bow, then tied a silver flower pot charm using silver wire. I added the birthday sentiment hardware. I used the Sizzix layered flowers die cut on pre-embossed dp, adhered 2 paper flowers, then added big pearls for the centers. I stamped the stitched lines for the stems, used a black sharpie and drew the leaves. I used the MS butterfly punch, added pearls for the body.
If I knew it was going to snow, I wouldn't of stayed up this late, but wanted to make the card for the challenge.

Pretty. I like how you've done different panels of dp behind your flowers. I've had enough of the white stuff and today was a day of promise of Spring to come soon. It was quite nice! Hope your snow doesn't last. (unless of course you're a snow person) Great Spring card. TFS. : )

I love the stitching and the soft feminine colours!
