Floral Birthday

I was asked by some colleagues of my DH to make a card for a fellow worker who is 50 this week. The brief was gardening. I decided to go with a 'plant in a flowerpot' This card is UBER big! It's A4 in size (11 x 8 1/2"). I used a check & polka dot mix of papers and hand cut a flowerpot from Kraft Cardstock (actually boxes from The Paper Mill!) I tied a sheer ribbon bow around the flowerpot and added a safmat greeting beneath it. The flowerpot was added to the card with foam pads. I cut out the recipient's name & age from glitter card and added the name above the flowerpot and the age on the flowerpot. I used 5 large blooms (from a hawaiin lei from a £ shop) and layered them up with primas and glittered brads. I added some leaves from my stash to finish.
