Happy Birthday Marilyn!

Happy Birthday to Marilyn! This is for my wonderful MIL.  She has a wonderful green thumb and this card with all the beautiful flowers is perfect for her.

The challenge over at Flourishes was to create a card using a combination from their bingo board. I knew I was going to use their beautiful flowers so I added scallops and die cuts to the combo.

  
I just love this dress form as it can be decorated in so many ways. :)  The flowers are from the lovely Violets set from Flourishes. They are colored using watercolor pencils and highlighted with a little clear glitter. 
The butterflies are punched out using an Marvy Uchida punch on some more violets.  The background paper is Websters Pages and I added the Hero Arts Flourish to add a little pattern on the background. 

The distressing is Vintage Photo from Rangers Distress Inks. The frame is left over from one of my other projects where I used the newspaper and glimmer mist. 

I hope you have wonderful weekend planned. Thanks for stopping by..
