This is the first card I post for you to see. Actually, it's for a contest on the amazing Christmas and Birthday Cards, and I followed their sketch. It's a birthday card which I think turned out pretty nice. I had this idea in my head for days, and today I finally found the time to make the card. I used butterfly-embossed pearl-white cardstock as background. I cut out pink petal shapes and glued them together to form a flower. A teardrop-shaped gem that I had in my stash is the falling/missing petal. I also used lilac, light and dark pink cardstock, and a little piece of ribbon.
