Blush Bonnie Birthday Card

Hello!  Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far!  This is card I made for a friend this last week. Her favorite colors are orange and green.  I don't usually use a lot of orange so it was really fun to make!  The paper collection I used  for the background of the card was Teresa Collin's "Linen Fabrications".  Such pretty papers!!!  The image I used is from the Greeting Farm stamp "Blush Bonnie" and she is so adorable!  I paper pieced her dress and socks also with the paper collection.  I used the "Lacy Scallop" Spellbinders die cut layered in two different sizes to place her on.  I also layered the bottom of the card with some trims from Frog Feathers and also KarlaS001's store on Etsy.  I also used some of Karla's small champagne pearls to line the green trim. The flowers are from I am Roses.   I added a pearl center for the small white crochet flower.  I altered the large rose which had an orange and white combination.  I thought it was a little too white so I sprayed over it with Tattered Angels "Wheat Fields", which muted the white down a bit and gave it more of a yellowish tone to match the rest of the card.  The rest of the flowers and leaves were sprayed with TA "Iridescent Gold".   I made a small banner and punched out some butterflies from the beautiful papers also.  I added some small pearls in the centers of the the butterflies.  My friend really liked her card and I hope you all do too! :) Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by! I really enjoy and appreciate hearing all your sweet comments! :)  Hugs, Marcy
