A Flower for Crystal

Crystal is my oldest daughter and her birthday was yesterday - she is 24 now. I don't know how the time goes by so fast! Here is the card I made her:


I made the flower by cutting out three SB flower dies and then peeling the two smaller sizes so I had 5 layers. Then I sponged the edges with TH Wild Honey, wet the layers and then scrunched them up a bit. After they were dry, I used a stylus to curl them up. I embossed the bottom layer of my card with some wild honey on the ef. Love how it came out - hope she does too.

Hugz! I promise to catch up on what everyone has been making soon! I can't wait to see it all.
