Nanna birthday card

A birthday card for my sons to give my mother-in-law. She loves flowers and butterflies so hopefully she will like this card. 

A 8x8in white card. I have matt and layered the card with pink and white embossed card. I have embossed the card with a Xcut embossing folder. I have used 2 heart dies from a Sizzix nesting set in to cut a heart shape to attach the flowers to. I have cut flowers in felt using various dies from Tattered Lace and Lea'bilites. I have embellished the flowers with various buttons from my stash. I have printed out a personalised sentiment and cut it out with the heart die and placed it behind the floral heart. I have completed the card with flat backed pearls
