Flower Pot Birthday

Hi there 🙂 It’s time for another challenge over at Creative Fingers 🙂 We’re always ATG, and this time, we are being sponsored by our own Angelique, who will send this prize out to our lucky winner.

I made this card for my kid’s (who is a bit of a plant nerd) birthday. I made a box card, without the flaps, out of terra cotta colored card stock. To make it look more like a plant pot, I added an extra strip around the top. I die cut a bunch of leaves from green velvet paper, because I wanted this to be a pot of African Violets. After positioning these in the pot, I die cut 3 violet blooms, and tucked them in. It still looked a bit blah, so I thought of the plant arrangement I got for my birthday, and cut out some ivy vines from cream paper, then added the green with my Copics. A gold peel off sentiment was the perfect finishing touch 🙂 I’m happy to say that my kid loved this card!

I’d like to enter this in the following:
