Birthday flowers

I uess I better take advantage of my not-learning-mood and finish another post for today.
This time, a card full of summer feelings that reflect in a bouquet of flowers (even though they were actually another exhibition card ;)). 
The flowers are stitched with regular cross-stitch yarn of different colours. To make the blooms a bit more visible, I softly coloured around them with coloured pencils. Additionally, I only used soft cream and beige paper for the background of my card. The swirly embossed paper in the back is another discovery I made in Wuppertal.
In some of the flowers,  placed tiny pearls that resemble the pollen.
A careful reader might notice it's a motif I use quite often compared to my other stitching motifs, for the simple reason that I think it is suitable for so many occasions. This time, as the silver sticker indicates, I made a birthday card for my stash. 
A little contribution to the June collection of Create in Austria - artwork created by Austrians and/or in Austria.
