Botanical flower birthday card

I'm back again with another birthday card, I hve so many family & friends birthdays coming up in the next few weeks, i'ts a busy time. I'm back at work tomorrow after 2 weeks off due to very high blood pressure, so back to normal, not enough time to work and play...
I had such fun with my spray paints and distress inks this is another card but totally different colours to the bright circle card.
I wanted it to be flowers and leaves but the colours came out better than anticipated giving it a botanical feel, I'm really pleased with it. Unfortunately the photo doesn't do justice to the vibrant colours used. The A5 card is made up with:-

Dylusion sprays
Distress inks
Ali Reeves masks
SB flowers dies
Sheena Douglas sentiment stamp

Be back soon with more offerings.

Thanks to you all for such lovely comments left and showing your support they are much appreciated.
