I have always been in awe (and a bit in love) with Altenew's gorgeous flower sets. I finally got one of my favorites a month or so ago and pulled it out to create this birthday card for my aunt. Her birthday is Christmas Eve, so I wanted to stay away from anything Christmasy. I went with some soft colors and lots of texture to create this elegant card for her.
Both the die cut circle and the bit of green sheer ribbon were in my bits and pieces stash. And all the images were stamped on scraps of white, colored and fussy cut.
Stamps: Altenew "Beautiful Days"
Dies: Spellbinders "Classic Circles, large"
