Hearts Unfold Like Flowers Before Thee

Today I'm sharing a card I made for one of my church lady friend's birthday.  She turned 85 yesterday and is one of the kindest ladies I know.  

For her card, I selected Sweet 'N Sassy's Flowers in Bloom which has these lovely cone flowers.   The sentiment from the hymn, also from this set,  is just perfect with flowers.


I colored the image with my Copic markers and then used Gina Marie Designs Nesting Label Three for the decorative edge.  I normally would add my ribbon across the bottom where the flower stems end, but this time I used the negative side of the matting paper to make the strip across.

Hopefully it made it to her yesterday for her special day.
