I used brighter colors, but tried to stick to the layout and some of the features she put together to make her beautiful card.
I used a b/g stamp for the right corner panel and the other panels were SU dsp. I added lace and ribbon in the center of the panels and then moved on to create the flower. It has 5 layers and an adornment in the center. They are all popped up on dimensionals. Just for fun and to add a little more delicacy, I added the tried and true corner punches with pearls. I also used a line of mini pearls b/t the 2 top panels. I love the bitty banner stamp set with matching framelits, so I used them angled on the side peeking out from behind the flower treatment.
Colleen, my dear friend, you are awesome and so is your gallery. I made it one day b/f the next FS is selected. I didn't think I'd make it, but had to pay tribute to you. Just wish I had gone softer with my colors. Hugs!
Thanks for taking a look!

Pamzi, I'm sure Colleen will love this beautiful card. Wow! Great job with the flower. The sentiment pieces are pretty, too. I see you're staying true to the punch tally. LOL I was late with getting a card cased for Colleen, too.
Hope you're having a fun, restful weekend.
