Matching gift wrap and card

Hello bloggers, I am back again... 

I hope the sun is shining more and it is less cold...

I made this card recently to match a gift for Zeenya's friend's birthday party. 

The gift wrap was done at the toy shop - it is a bit plain, I have to say and not even worth sharing with the high standard stuff I see in blog land.

 I had all of ten minutes to get the card ready and this is what I did.

The satin roses are store bought but the little crochet flower peeping out on the top was made by me.

Rather quick and simple but Zeenya was happy with it and so was I.

I am going to enter this card for the following challenges: - green on your card - who's who in the zoo

I am sorry you have to bear with the woven ribbon yet again but I do LOVE it!

Happy crafting and have a great weekend,
