A Birthday card for Friend

Hi all
Here is a birthday card i made for a friend.After seeing all the new die range featuring fuschias from heartfelt designs i had a go at creating my own fuschias using dies i had already bought from Britannia dies and i don't think they look too bad even if i do say so myself lol.
I used craftwork card papers .Circle  and scalloped circle nesties,an 8x8 card blank .a spellbinders rectangular fancy die on the inside.The sentiment on the inside is actually a pre printed craftwork cards insert which i die cut to fit the frame.The leaves are made using a sizzix die and the flowera rae made using craftwoek card papers and a britannia flower die.The ribbon is from my stash and i used my Craft-Dee BowZ bow maker to form the bow you can find out all about it HERE 

.The pins i made myself and there is a very basic tutorial HERE to show you how to make them for yourselves.The gem centre is from wild orchid.
