Birthday Girl

I made a card for my little niece who is 11 today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY PRESH!!

I used lilac and pink Dovecraft chalks to colour the
embossed card, but they are not showing too clearly here. With a craft knife and ruler, I cut 2 windows from the card front, around which I glued paper flowers from my stash.

I adhered pale pink vellum to the inside back and then added the silver peel off greeting and flower, lining them up with the windows. I then dipped a cocktail
stick in bright pink glitter glue and added it to the centre of the paper flowers and also used it to dot the letter 'i' in the greeting. As a finishing touch I added a pretty butterfly embellishment between the windows as shown in the close up.
