A Darling Daughter’s Birthday Card

A very Happy Monday to ALL! 

It’s Allyson’s Birthday and here is the card I made for her reflecting her feminine and soft side.  I think she’ll like it.

        011

To personalize this card a bit, I came up with the letter ‘A’ to take part in the focal point.  Distressing the leaves, fussy cutting the flower and designer frame provided me with the 3D effects.

I actually stamped the floret twice, in two shades of pink, cut each one out and then popped up the center part with dimensionals.

Here’s a peek at the inside ~
