For the past couple of weeks I have been creating a card every week for my grandma who is sick. All the cards I make are flower themed. This is my favorite card I've made. It's also probably the most intricate and time-consuming card I've ever made. Smiley All the paper on this came from my huge drawer of scrap papers.

On the inside, there is a pop-up vase of flowers. I also added a strip of scrap ribbon around the vase.

This is a closer look at the vase. I did use a book ("The Cardmaker's Bible") for the idea of this card but I pretty much only used the vase on the inside for the card. The rest is all me. Cheesy

Swapping altered puzzle pieces. PM me if interested in swapping.

Collect pressed pennies so feel free to include any local pennies in with swaps. Smiley

Aw, I'll bet your grandmother loved that; it's so bright and cheery. The pop-up vase is great!
