Beautiful Blooms

I made this quick birthday card for a friend who loves roses.  I managed to use some card and paper from my snippets mountain so I'm heading into the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.  I'm also entering Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Quick and Easy' and Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Beautiful Blooms' Art Pad
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Classic Circles Large'  and 'Classic Scalloped Circles Large'
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Snippets: Dark green and white card, Lili of the Valley 'Perfect Pair' and Shabby Shack' paper

I trimmed the green card so it was slightly smaller than the card blank and die cut the scalloped circle from the centre.  I attached the green square to the card blank and then inlaid a scalloped circle cut from white card into the centre (one of Di's tips).  I trimmed the green paper before attaching it to the card. I trimmed a strip of pink paper, layered it onto green card and attached it horizontally across the centre.  I die cut and embossed the pre-coloured Art Pad image before layering it onto the green scalloped die cut circle and attaching it to the centre of the card with Pinflair glue.
