A 'Clean and Simple' Birthday Card

Today's make is a quick, clean and simple birthday card,
which I have made flat for posting.
I started by embossing the base card with the Lawn Fawn die to make a frame.
After cutting the Flower Heart die in silver mirror card, I glued some yellow card
behind the flowers, cut around the silver edge, then coloured the flowers with Promarkers.

Next I glued a piece of green de-bossed Swiss Dots card behind the banner,
then glued it onto the base card.
Added the sentiment and some diamantes to the frame.

The products I have used are:-
Lawn Fawn - Large Cross-Stitched Square Stackables
Flower Heart die - purchased from eBay
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Swiss Dots
