Bloom Criss Cross.....

 Hope you are all having a great Bank Holiday..for a change the weather has been quite good! I had a happy accident with this card! That rather voluptuous vase was cut from pink shimmer cardstock, then embossed. Only it wasn't embossed was it? No, I debossed it instead! DUH!  'Oh Poo' says I (or words to that effect) Then I had a lightbulb moment. I reached for a white gel pen and filled in the debossed area and I was really pleased with the finished result. I added a pearl to the centre of each of the flowers and it looks really pretty. I added punched flowers over the flowers that were cut with the vase. I use Papermania punches for my teeny flowers and leaves. The garden themed paper was from my stash (don't know who made it) and the green checked/spotty papers were from  6x6 magazine freebie pads.
I added a shaped panel & the word 'bloom' to the pocket, and the insert was decorated with a 'Happy Birthday' sentiment and a smattering of punched flowers. A WOC bloom and a ribbon bow completes the card.
