Dream Valley ~ Flowers

It's time for a new Dream Valley challenge and it's a fun and simple one this week. Flowers! How easy is that?!! I know most of us use some floral touches on our creations. So come on over and join in with us!

My challenge card I also made for a family birthday and it came together very quickly. I used a lovely floral topper that I picked up some years ago from the Alexandra Palace Craft fair in London from a store called 'Every Craft's A Pound'. They had some gorgeous papers and I found a really lovely set of vellum and paper floral toppers and some Christmas toppers. This floral image was amongst them.

I wanted to use a fun 'patchwork' paper as the person I was giving this to is a quilter, so I thought this would appeal to her. It's from a pretty paper pad that came with one of my favourite craft magazines. I used a Martha Stewart edge punch on the base layer of the image mat which I tied with a gold organza ribbon. I've rounded most of the corners to reflect the curved lines in the base card. I have quite a few sets of beautiful wooden buttons from Prima, so I found one that matched well with the papers and tied a bow through it and added a birthday tag. The main sentiment is an older digital sentiment, from DigiStamp Boutique.
