Beautiful Blooms

I made this card for a friend's birthday and am entering the Allsorts 'Happy Birthday' challenge.  I'm also entering Die-Cut Divas 'May Flowers' challenge, Crafty Friends 'Summer Colours' challenge and  Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes'.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Beautiful Blooms' Art Pad
Dies: Memory Box 'Grand Happy Birthday' and Tattered Lace 'Mini Butterfly'
Card: Purple and lilac pearlescent, white silk

I trimmed the purple card so it was slightly smaller than the card blank.  I then trimmed the width of the pre-coloured Art Pad image before die-cutting 'happy' from the lower edge.  This was then attached to the card blank.  I die-cut 'happy birthday' from lilac pearlescent card, trimmed it and attached it to the lower edge of the card.  I then die-cut the sentiment from white silk card and inlaid the pieces.  To finish I added a small die-cut butterfly to the top corner.
