70th Birthday Card

This is my first attempt at making a card using Serif Craft Artist Pro, which I have only recently bought so thought I should have a dabble lol. I'm really pleased with how the card turned out as it is simple but very pretty. I love how you can print text to go in different directions. The inner background and the heart shape were made with the Serif, which I then matted onto dark green card to add layers to the general appearance of the finished card. I also added punched butterflies to also add dimension. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I finished off the card with a few colour co-ordinating pearls and of course some glitter.
It is for my daughter's mother-in-law who will be 70 next week. I hope she likes it!!
I have decided to be very brave...or very foolish...and enter this in the latest Glitter Geeks challenge 'Week 18 - Flower Power'.
