Crazy Amigo Challenge - Birthday Cards


This is a birthday card that I designed for a very dear friend of mine. Her dream was to have lunch at the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France, a dream that she realized shortly after she received this card. I used beeswax to adhere the real flowers and to give a glow to the entire collage. This is my submission for the Crazy Amigo Challenge this week.
