Saying "Happy Centenary" with a bouquet of spring flowers!

We have a new theme for "Self Made Flowers" at Everybody Art Challenge and we would love for you to join us there.   My teamies have plenty of inspiration for you.

I was commissioned to make a 100th birthday card for a friend's mother whose birthday is later this  month and whose favourite colour is yellow and favourite flower is Primrose.  I bought an Elizabeth Craft die for the flowers and primrose leaves and spent a very long time making these pretty blooms.   I added some simple embossed squares, small punched flowers, additional leaves and of course the all important numbers before stamping my sentiment.  I hope Katie likes the card when she receives it.  

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Make my Monday -#145 Spring or Easter.  I think these spring flowers fit the bill

Sweet Stampin - Special Woman

Time Out #184 April with a quote about gardens and again, I feel this floral card works well

Cute Card Thursday - #680 Anything Goes 

Sieze the Birthday #211 Squares 

Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

Watercooler Wednesday - #312 Helen's All about Occasions
