Many thanks to Regal Craft for this and the shaped card they supplied to me to make this card!
It is actually my birthday this month - I am a Leo - can't you tell?
However, this card is for a person who is going to be 95 in a few weeks, and is another Leo - it is significant because she has made it to her Birthday as she has not been well lately as well as because she is 95, and because she is a beloved sister-in-law!
Can you guess what my card shape is yet?
I made my card using dies and the shaped card, some sparkly card, some acetate and a scrap of SU DP. All the card stock apart from the sparkly card is SU - if you want to know the colours just email me.
It is a pot plant!!
The flowers are made using a Spellbinders die called 'Create a Gerber Daisy'!
It took me 30 minutes to put together each flower.
They look pretty though, don't they!
The insects are also dies and I have attached them to thin acetate strips. Behind the flowers is also a piece of acetate from the top of the pot to the top of the card - see through - and I have attached some flowers and leaves to this as well. It even looks pretty neat behind the strip!
The inside of the card has the piece of DP, and a SU label die cut in Very Vanilla to write on the message. I made the error of using a piece of double sided tape rather than just some sticky on the dragonfly body, and I notice you can see it behind the dragonfly - I therefore didn't use double sided tape behind my butterfly and it looks much better - floating above the flowers. The sparkly khaki card that the pot is covered with came from a pack bought from a $2 shop! I think it is meant to be gold!
Well, there is my DT piece for Unstampabelles - I hope you like it! Remember, we are making a card for a Significant Birthday - no stamps to be used - and if you want to TWIST - use a shaped card!
I look forward to seeing what you come up with for this challenge!
I will enter my pot plant in the following challenges:

Craft Room Challenge: a summer Garden - Gerbers grow in summer here, albeit that is saying that I currently have some in a vase from a lovely flower bouquet my hubby gave me for my birthday! Hothouse grown I would think!
