Iris folded birthday card

I have used patterned paper from my stash to create this  iris folding with a pattern I already had. I die cut a frame with a Xcut scalloped circle die. I embossed white paper with a Crafts Too folder. I have printed a personalised sentiment. I used patterned paper to match the iris folding on the front of my 8x8in white card. I put embossed white card on the bottom and the white card with the sentiment on the top. I coloured the ladies skin and hair with copic pens. I used tiny self adhesive flat backed pearls to look like a necklace and bracelet. I stuck satin pink ribbon on the join. I completed the card with flat backed pearls
