Floral card

I had a request to make a floral card suitable for an older person, so I've used Anna Griffin supplies from the engraved botanica kit I recently purchased. It was a very quick and easy card to make because the supplies did all the work, but I'm not complaining! It's A5 size to accommodate the large rose and butterfly decoupaged items.

This was inspired by the photo for Scrap-cards 28 (the pink roses):

And pink for Divas by design 35: we are tickled pink, also pink and green for Totally Gorjuss 131.

This is also for:
