Flowers are blooming

Good day everyone! I have a flower card to share with you today that can be used for any occasion. I was inspired by all the new things blooming in my garden today. I just had to make a quick card while on my lunch break to celebrate all this beauty that is surrounding me.
Hope you enjoy my card! (FYI - the deep blue has a touch of turquoise to it, but no matter how I photographed it, the bright and brilliance of the blues just aren't quite the same).

Inside of card and side view to show the dimension of the flower.
