Slightly In The Shadows

I wanted to make a good luck card  for a teacher who has taught at the local school for many years, 

As she grows sunflowers I "grew" my own from a scalloped circle, the flowers centre was cut, embossed over part of a snowflake embossing folder and shaped it well adding it using silicone glue, lol, it's so domed that it cast a shadow on the lower part of the bloom. I used washi tape for the stem, adding some to card scraps from which I then cut leaves. 

I wanted each of my children to be able to write their own personal message so on the inside of the card I made pockets to slide tags into. 

I'm using this card for the following challenges :-
CIO ,with washi tape,
CVCC5, Summer,
AI51, Embossing,
LIM129, Hand made flowers,
TSATF48, Spooled.

Thanks for stopping by,
