Joan's Garden Challenge 3 2012 once more

Good Evening Ladies,
I have decided to have another go round of Joan's Garden Challenge 3 2012. You can see all the entries here
And here it is....
 For this card I used a embossing folder for my base over a white card. I sanded the embossed portion with a Tim Holtz sanding block. I then distressed the edges with a tonic distress tool. I used pierceing tool around the edge. You can see this better in the next photo. I used the Cheery Lynn olive branch die to create leaves for my flowers. A spellbinder die was used to create the center piece which I stamped Happy Birthday on. To create the flowers I used the memory box pinwheel posie. The quilling tool really helped in shaping these flowers. A sheer pink ribbon and pearls top this card off.

I love this flower die that I purchased at Joan's. She was out of the other two flower dies. I can tell you right now I am going to purchase them as soon as they come back in stock.
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
