Yet another post with card made on order.

This one was to use greens and purples, and she picked out a pre-coloured bunch of lilacs by Lili of the Valley. I do love these pads of beautiful images. The lady who requested it wanted it to be similar to another card. You can see a thumbnail image of that card on the right.

I bought ribbon in a local shop to match the green First Edition Paper Pad paper. The purple paper is by Papermania. All the flowers on the card are purchased at Wild Orchid Crafts. I also used punchers by Martha Stewart to make the edge around the card and the little leaves behind the flowers. The name tag in the middle was glued on the sides and put on a foam sticker in the middle so it bevels, looking like it goes around the vase; that was the idea of it anyway! And then I used pearls to sort of ‘nail’ the two text tags in place.
