Summery, Girly Birthday Card

I made this card using some delish papers from the First Edition Summer Breeze paper pad, I love the summery feel to these papers, they're just perfect for brightening up our dull UK summer! I coloured the image using promarkers and added some Prima flowers, pearls and a ribbon with pins and a little flower charm to finish off.
