Flower Power

I have just made this card for my sister's 50th and am entering it into the Fab 'n' Funky "Flower Power" challenge.  I used a blue art silk 8x8 card blank by Hunkydory, which was an extra challenge as I normally make A5 or small square cards.  Hopefully I have not overdone it but last time I tried this size card it looked rather empty.  The flowers were made with various dies in the Cuttlebug, a daisy punch and a clear stamp, which I think was free with The Craft Stamper.  My next challenge will be to find a suitable 50th birthday present to buy online, as I won't be able to get out and about for several weeks yet.

stash list:

Magnolia Tilda stamp & Promarker pens
Teal blue organza ribbon
Stickles & Cosmic Shimmer glitter glues
Craft Stamper flower & black Memento ink
Papers by Joanna Sheen, Coredinations, Crafty Secrets, HOTP, Pergamano parchment,red & silver card
Spellbinder Nestabilities dies - circles, scalloped circles, labels 2
Sissix Bigz floral dies
Cuttlebug embossing folders - birthday & swiss dots
wire & heart/pearls/star embellishments
