Floral Birthday

A friend ordered a birthday card for her mom who lives in Vancouver and requested a garden theme with pinks and blues. This is what I came up with in an hour while my son was napping but the most shocking thing is that I used my SU Botanical Blooms set. I've loved this set since the day I choose it as a freebie but I've never been able to make something with it that made me really happy. Since Valentine's Day is approaching and I have an abundance of pink papers, the timing couldn't have been more perfect. I was working on some other cards but when this idea popped into my head I couldn't take the chance of losing inspiration!
