Bloomin' Center Stair Card

My mom's birthday is next week (she will be 92) and I wanted to make her a special card.  I really love how it turned out.  I hope she will like it too.

I started with GKD white cardstock - nice and heavy and cut the step card using a template as a guide.  The designer paper is a piece that has been in my stash for years.  All the flowers are cut out with my Silhouette.  The paper lace border is a die cut that also embosses. (I don't know the company but I think they are no longer in business.)  The white circle is a Spellbinder die as are the pink Scalloped circle and the circle with the sentiment.  My Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish die was perfect to work around the flowers and to go with the flourishes in the designer paper.
The centers of the coral and maroon flowers were part of the cutting file.  For the yellow flowers I added a green pearl.
This is only the second step card I have made but I really enjoyed making it so it won't be my last.
