My daughter-in-law has a birthday in May and the card will need to be mailed so I kept this design low profile. I chose to omit a sentiment from the front because I wanted to keep the card uncluttered. I like to make landscape cards with a side opening rather than a bottom opening because they are sturdier to stand up for display.
A panel of cardstock and a panel of DSP were adhered to the card base. Two ribbon banners were added. After die cutting two fancy labels, one was die cut again for the flowers, sponged, then adhered to the second, larger label. The piece was backed with foam tape and adhered to the DSP layer with the banners in the background. Enamel dots were added. The inside of the card was lined with a panel of white cardstock that was die cut with a flower, sponged and an enamel dot.
The colors were selected based on the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge #297.
The design was inspired by the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge #85.
