Age is a work of art

This card is for the Papertrey Pals challenge #6 - to use flowers! That's an easy one :)

This card started with the large scalloped piece, which I was going to use for this card, but decided on a softer colour palette. Everything was based off of the colours and the bold stripes.

It's hard to see, but I popped up one end of the banner (under the "H") to give it lots of dimension.

And of course I had to decorate the inside of the card:

Stamps: Birthday Basics, Polka Dots Basics II, Forest Friends (PTI),
Paper: Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White cardstock, Summer Picnic DSP (SU)
Ink: Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue (SU), Ripe Avocado (PTI)
Accessories: Polka Dot Basics II Impression Plate, Lg scalloped border die, blue button (PTI), butterfly (Making Memories), Cuttlebug (Provocraft), felt flowers (SU), brad (unknown)
