Another Happy Birthday

I was asked to make an 80th Birthday card for a friend to give to her friend.  The only guide I was given was that she likes her garden and goes to church, so I just had to go with flowers.  The DP is from a 12x12 pad I got at The Works, 24 sheets of double sided for only £3. The stamps I have used are from the Christina collection at Craft Stash, I have had them for ages and this is the first time I've used them.  I did put a little verse inside the card "The kiss of the sun for pardon" one by Dorothy Francis Gurney as  a nod to church aspect, it's a little verse I've always related to as I find getting out into the garden very therapeutic.  I'd like to add my card to Allsorts Challenge

  5. This just caught my eye as I was browsing through my reading list, Joan. Absolutely beautiful! The lady will be delighted with it, I'm sure. Must look out for that BP when I'm next in The Works, it's so pretty.
