Love Easel Birthday Cards

     This one is for a very good friend of mine for about 20 yrs now! She loves purple and the tues. colour challenge over at The Outlawz was to make a card using lime green, white and azure purple and add flowers. Right away I knew I could use these colours to make my friends card and enter it in this challenge at the same time....WOOT! Then I was looking around at a few other places to play and through an email from a very crafty friend I happened upon a wonderful challenge site called Totally Gorjuss, and they aren't kidding, perfect name. The challenge this week is to go Swirly Wirly, and have swirls, whirls, flourishes etc on your project somewhere, and who doesn't love to add swirls etc to their projects, I know I do. So I added a flourish of gems, and the paper kind of has some swirly effects going on, LOL. So here's my card:
     The background DP is from a book of papers by Paper Pazazz - Hot off the Press, the dp paper with the flowery image on it is by unkown, it was in my scrap drawer and I have had it a long time, was saving this piece for just the right project. I made the rose and glued it to a prima flower, punched and shaped some leaves for around the flower and added the bling. 
     Thank you for popping by my blog today, I hope you like my card. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think, I love to hear from you. Until next time have  a scrap happy day!
