Pink and green birthday

This card was commissioned for a friend to give to her friend ... something bright and cheerful. The band across the background is actually a free piece of wallpaper frieze that I've upcycled. The beautiful 3D flowers and leaves were from an Anna Griffin kit bought long ago and the sentiment oval was from Kanban.

This is for:
