It's a gift card.... card

I love love love how this card turned out.  I created this recently for my Nan's 91st birthday.  Yes, you heard me right, I GAVE A CARD AWAY.  It's a first for me!   Satisfaction was of course in the giving as she's very happy with it and has given it pride of place on top of the fridge.  The reason for the title - well you'll see when you look at the photos below, it's actually designed to have a gift card inserted into it.

I still can't get the knack of putting a cluster of flowers on something and not making it look "plonked" on, but I'm happy with this - mostly because of the colours I think.  It's my old favourite dark olive green.

Thanks for popping in!
