Spellbinder die is called exquisite circle. Pearl pen used for the center of the flowers color sunny yellow and added some ice white to the background. Ribbon is from Joann’s essentials. Flower gem are from my stash.

I wanted to show you the punches I used to make the flowers. What I did was take a white cardstock and my distress inks colors scattered straw, mustard seed, squeezed lemonade, rusty hinge, spiced marmalade, ripe persimmon and wild honey and applied the colors to the cardstock and when I felt it was enough and I always leave some of the white show as it adds highlights to the flowers.  I do this on both sides so there is no right or wrong side to the flowers. I will punch out the entire piece of cardstock and when I want to use this color for flowers on a card again I will have then already made.

Inside is a little different this time because I have 5 birthday.  Stamped the sentiment with stazOn  color olive green and that is from stampenous and so is the little boy, he is stamped with memento tuxedo black and colored with copic markers. These stamps I have had for many of years. The green out line on the edge I did that with the flat tip of the copic marker end color YG45.

What a "dreamy" card, Patricia! Girlfriend, you rocked this one, too! :^) Love that darling dragon, and you colored him beautifully! Love the great colors, fabulous paper, really cool die cut & treatment, and your tiny flowers are gorgeous! (Time-consuming, I'm sure, but worth it!) Love, love, love this! :^)
Hugs, Penny
