Tilda with flowers

Hi everyone, hope you're all well and enjoying your weekend...

I want to share a card I've made for my late husband's mum's 75th birthday.
My wonderful husband Ted bought me a new Tilda stamp earlier this week so I thought I'd try it out. He also bought me another round the page punch so look out for that making an appearance soon. I've cut out the image using the largest die in the labels 5 spellbinder set. I then drew round the die on blue paper to mat  it. I've used the same paper to die cut the butterfly and flourish using Cheery Lynn dies. The flowers are by docraft and I've added some glitter to the dark blue one, punched a small flower in the matching blue and added a pink brad to tie back in with Tilda's dress. The white panel has been embossed with a happy birthday folder and I've rounded off diagonally opposite corners. This panel has then been edged with faded jeans distress ink. The backing paper is from the Papermania capsule collection and is cut with a deckle edge and edged with the same blue ink. I've added a few self adhesive pearls to the flourish and 75 in a small would be rude to shout out a lady's age...
