Female Birthday Card

Today, I am sharing the card I made for my sister for her birthday.
The card base is a 6" x 6" square and I positioned the decorative edge die
on the right hand edge and ran through my die cutting machine. 
Next using just the outline edge of the die, I cut a panel of lilac card
and glued it underneath.
I die cut the flower die in silver mirror and lilac card, and inlaid the
outer and inside petals only.
The products I have used are:-
Decorative edge die - Purchased from eBay
Memory Box die - Cecilia Flower
WS Designs Sentiment Set - Happy Birthday
