Female Birthday Card

Today I would like to share with you my latest make for the Fiskarettes Design Team 
which you can find on their Facebook page here.
I made a portrait A6 card base from an A4 sheet of Kraft card and used the
Fiskars Interchangable border punch along both sides of the card, adding a couple
 of score lines each side of the border with my Hougie Board.
I made the flowers using funky foam by using the Fiskars flower power punch. 
To give them a little bit of texture, I ran them through the embossing folder.
I attached pieces of gold thread to each of them, plus a pearl for the centre.
Then attached them to the card, added the bow and a greeting.
The items I have used are:-
Fiskars Interchangeable Border Punch - Rainbow Cassette
Fiskars Power Punch - Small flower
Hougie Board
Sizzix Embossing Folder

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
