Handmade Flowers Card - Blog Challenge - Scrapbook City

Hi everyone

Had so much fun creating this card.  I saw something similar a little while ago (had 3 flowers in the pocket) but cant remember where I found it now.  Because the front of the card became 'heavy' I decided to add a 'back' if that makes sense.

Front of card

Close up of front

Since I took this photo, I punched a couple of small branches and added a little pearl to cover up my stamping error above the word 'birthday'.  I forgot to take a photo of this when  finished. This photo also has a view of the inside of the card with the bottom flap dropped down

This is a side on view.  The ribbon wraps around to hold the top and bottom 'flaps' closed on the back of the card

This is the back of the card when flaps are folded and tied with the ribbon to keep them together

and last . . . but not least . . .
this is how the card opens out to create a door hanger!
