Sentimental Sundays: Birth Flowers


Hello everyone! I hope you guys are doing good. I am sorry for not visiting your blogs, I am still not well enough. 

I was asked by Calypso of Sentimental Sundays to join their team, I wasn't this ill when I said yes and now I think I wouldnt be able to do justice to their challenges. The challenge this week is "Birth Flowers", I made this card well in advance otherwise I would have to skip my first post.
You can use your birth flower or just get inspired by them. I took inspiration from my birth flower (lily of the valley), and used the colours white and green for my card.
This is one of the cards that was sent to Tejal on her birthday.


The flowers are handmade, you can find the template for the white ones at Mel's blog. The center is a simple fringe flower coloured with Crayola markers.
I am sorry I thought I will be able to handle a detailed post but I am still not well. Here are some detail shots, I hope you will get the idea.

ETA: Feeling better, thought I'd continue :)
The PP and butterfly are both digi prints.

The frame is Silhouette cut and sentiment is HA.


The doily is also Silhouette cut. I hope you can see the scoring below the PP.
