Orchid Opulence Birthday Card

Greeting Everyone,
I can't believe the children are out of school and summer is only a few days away!  And talking of summer, there is a challenge at Pals Paper Arts.  I made this card for a friend and thought I will enter the Pals Paper Arts challenge.  Their theme is Summer.

Doesn't this card say summer to you! I really like how this card turns out and I hope the recipient likes it. I don't know her favorite color so hopefully she doesn't mind this colors combo.

Card stocks are Orchid Opulence and Basic black.  The mini roses were from my stash that I made not long ago.

Thanks for taking a peak!  Have a great weekend!

Your card is so cute! Love the quilling, AND those cute little flowers! : )
