Blue is her favorite color so I started with some Gina K powdered blue card and cut and scored it. You can see Dawn making a similar card Here. I changed the height to 51/2 for my card so I had a 51/2 by 51/2 square when folded. I picked some pretty Heartfelt Creations papers in blue for my dp, but since they came from two different collections,I wanted to make them match a bit better so I sponged them with distress ink. I also cut a slightly larger black mat for each piece.
Next I needed to make my focal flower. I stamped the Arianna flower from Heartfelt Creations in Versamark, embossed it in Wow white powder and then sponged it in Stormy Sky. I used two of the largest petals .
I stamped a beautiful sentiment from Heartfelt on one of my panels.
Then I create my floral spray with greenery and flowers that I keep on hand.
