For My Niece

Hi everyone!  My niece's birthday was on the 12th and I'm just making her card.  I thought I would just use one of the ones I had on hand, but I thought she deserved a special one from her favorite aunt and godmother!  So when I saw this sketch from Unscripted Sketches, I knew I had to use it to make her a special card.
Maria loves green, so I went through my paper to find four different patterns with green in them.  I took a 4.25 x 4.25 piece of white cardstock and covered it with adhesive.  Then I started laying the strips of paper on top of it on an angle and trimmed off the excess.  I die cut the rectangle in the middle as well as another rectangle from white cardstock.  The decorative panel was adhered to the base, and then I inlaid the sentiment piece in the hole.  The flower was made with pink pirouette cardstock and I added a pearl in the center.  This is an easy card to recreate and I love the outcome, but my flower making skills need to be honed I think!  The MFT girls' flowers seem to so much prettier!
That's it for me today!  It was a busy weekend of crafting!  I'll have another post tomorrow!  Thanks for stopping by!
