Commissioned Birthday Card

I was asked to make a very simple card for a customer as the recipient doesn't over-the-top cards.  I used a backing paper from one of the new releases from Bearly Mine Designs called "Floral Breeze".  The image is from a Debbi Moore Designs Magazine which I just simply mounted.  Under the image I stamped a LOTV postcard stamp and used my Inkylicious brushes to add Tim Holtz's Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and then I cut around the image, inking the edges again of course.  The embellishments I used are a Craftwork Cards sentiment, large gardenia flower from Wild Orchid Crafts and some gems.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

CRAFT - Celebration
Crafts 4 Eternity - Photo inspiration
Crafty Emma - Anything goes
Sweet Stampin' - Flower power
2 Sisters - Make it girly
Truly Scrumptious - Anything goes
Cupcake Inspiration - Photo inspiration
Simon Says Stamp - Anything goes
Sweet Stamps - My favourite colour - purple/lilac
