A Birthday Card for Patricia

Here is a card I made for one of my Cards for Men team mates a few weeks ago.  I know she's received it so I'm safe to blog it, lol.

The image is Joanna Sheen Garden Flowers - Lilac.  I have a number of these flower stamps which I'll be listing in my 'leftover stuff' blog later today.  Please pop over and see what bargains there are.

I coloured the image with Promarkers.  The backing paper is a Kate Knight set that came free with a magazine.  I used a Martha Stuart doily punch on the purple paper.  The flower was made using an X-cut punch.

Inside I used some really nice 'flower' papers as an insert but I couldn't get a decent picture.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Partytime Tuesdays - Anything Goes 
Scrap-Creations - Flowers
My Mum's Craft shop - #3 flowers
