Sister 70

I was asked by a friend to make a birthday card for a Sister who was turning 70 so I did this monochrome floral card.  I added a  stamp from TLC, Create and then heat embossed 70 on the corner.  For the inside I also used a sentiment from TLC.  Unfortunately, my friend that it was too frilly and too many flowers.  So, I will try again.
