Carnations for Carol - Spellblogging for Spellbinders

Hello there!
Thank you for joining me for another Weekend Spellblogging post for Spellbinders
This week I've used some gorgeous dies, both new and old to create a very special birthday card.
This is a commissioned card for a customer who has a friend celebrating her 90th birthday - what a great excuse to be extravagant with flowers and flourishes!

I used a smooth white card blank matted with green card to begin with.
Next I arranged three of the dies from
Victorian Garden Romantic Vines  Shapeabilities  Etched Dies set onto a piece of Diamond Bling card so that they made a pretty border in the lower right corner.

Once they were cut, I matted the white square onto my card so that the lovely green shows through the die cut areas 
I inked up the gorgeous leaf and flourish shapes that had been cut out in a toning shade of green to use under the flowers.
The lovely flowers are created with the Carnation Creations set by Donna Salazar.  I used Foamiran to make all three flowers.  This product is a very thin foam which is easy to shape into the most beautiful flowers - and there are lots of fabulous Spellbinders dies which are perfect to use to cut the shapes you need!
I created the sentiment on the computer and used a circle punch to cut it out, then matted onto this lovely flower doily shape from
Moroccan Accents Shapeabilities Etched Dies To finish, I tucked pieces of the inked flourishes under the flowers, added a little ribbon bow, some pearl strands and a few flat backed pearls in the corner.
