Lilac Avenue with a Flourish!!

This is the card I made for Jean's birthday. I used the brand new Flourishes set that Jean herself had given me for my birthday, a Year of Flowers, Calendar set 1. I used the sketch from the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge 52A and Cindy Haffner's idea of cutting my background pieces with Nesties. The flower is a Crocus and I have no idea whether you can get purple ones or not. These are because they matched the papers. lol
Ribbon is from my stash and matched perfectly. Jean absolutely loved her card.
It's still raining here but the sun has just come out. Wonder if it will last?
Have a wonderful day everyone and once again thanks for visiting.
