Tattered florals birthday card

This was a quick card to make. I used some papers from a MME paper stack, and the Sizzix Tattered Florals and Flourish dies. I also used my favourite embossing folder. The flower centre looks like a mini fruit pastille. It was made by sprinkling tiny beads on to Pinflair glue.

I'm entering this card in to the following challenges:
Less is More: sketch
Allsorts Challenge Blog: keep it simple
Whoopsi Daisy Challenge: make your own embellishment


  1. Welcome to "Less is More" Annette, this is a lovely card and even though it has rather a lot of layers for us at LIM the overall design is still CAS.
    Thanks so much for joining us and we hope to see you again next time.
