Birthday possibilities

I'm playing around with flower card at the moment.  Partly because the girls at work have cleared me out and also because my mum's asked me to make a card for an aunt.  I'm not sure which one we'll give her but this is one that I've made using a stamp from Make It Crafty.  I bought it before Quixoitic Paperie closed down so you'd have to get it directly from Zoe now.  The stamp is called Magnolias for Mum.
Here's a close up of the image which I've coloured using ProMarkers.  I cut the image out and then used some antique linen ink from Tim Holtz and distressed the edges.

All the design papers are from Lemoncraft.  Apart from the backing piece all the others have been distressed and had antique linen ink applied for an aged feel before layering them up.

The sentiment is also from Lemoncraft as are the butterflies (three of them) which I fussy cut out of their paper.  The final touch are some green self adhesive gems.  Once we decide which card I'm then going to customise it with 70th Birthday :)
