Bella Rose birthday

A birthday card for a daughter of a friend of mine. The inspiration for this card came from this card by Valita.
I have seen these scrunched flowers around so much and hadn't tried one for myself until this afternoon. After I had actually made one, I was quite happy with it. The colours of the card were determined by the dsp I used for the flower which is Bella Rose. Base is Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette has the border from Vintage Vogue stamped in Chocolate Chip on it then another layer of CC with strips of Bella Rose dsp layered. The ribbon is Riding Hood Red taffeta.
Leaves are the sizzlits die that is in the latest Autumn mini catalogue and I also used the tag punch and Teeny Tiny sentiments that are in the same catalogue.
Thanks for visiting and good night.
