Paper Flower Card

Here is a birthday card that I made for SIL. My 2nd sewing card ........ I need to practice on sewing especially since I basically have to do this in the dark ...... the lighting in this house is horrible ....... one day I will have a ton of windows!!! So when you add light colored paper, little light and being blond all together you can have issues!!! I am sure a little practice will help me. The paper flower is a ton of dahlia's cut with my spellbinders and tissue paper. I folded them in 1/8th's and kept layering until there was enough "poof" for me. The kraft card stock was stamped with the Waltzing Mouse stamp and a random flourish. The inside will be the best once I give Emma the card to do her "work" I am sure it will be her and a unicorn both smiling....... ohhhh I love that girl!!! Thanks for looking and have a great evening...........
