Happy Anniversary

Hi all
 I have made this card for a friend who loves clean and simple cards...its her anniversary so i thought i would go with thw white on white look,i am into this combo at the may have noticed...I used a XL go kreate frilly frames die for the card blank.then i embossed it with the spellbinders  grand impressabilities butterfly garden metal die to emboss the whole card ....i tried many combinations to get a crisp impression with my caliber and this die and was a bit dissappointed with the result was only a faint impression and as the die is quite expensive i won't be investing in any more of them!!!!
The blooms are from wild orchid,the pins i made myself is a tutorial for them.
The gems and wide satin ribbon are from meiflower crafts who has a  10mm wide satin ribbon [23m  roll ] sale on at the mo check here for details
I also used nesties for matting and layering and the sentiment is from the net,the  edge punch is from SU
