Cards for Meg's Garden #2

Hello everyone and a very warm welcome to you all.
I hope you are having a fabulous day and that the weather is being kind to you.
I am here to share the second card from my Meg's Garden DT project.  
 The base of the card  is a pastel pink cardstock  and, as with the previous card, the papers used are from the 'Dreaming in the Meadows' Mini Pack.  For this card I machine stitched around the edge to create a bit of a frame for the design.
 The die cuts are Couture Creations 'Starburst Doily Die', and 'Oval Nesting Dies' and Marianne Creatables 'Frame & Swirls'.  The banner was cut from the cardstock by hand and layered with the same paper.  The floral sprigs were cut with the 'Honey Blossom Sprig Die' from Memory Box.
 The gorgeous flower is the Ivory Primula to which I've just added some autumn leaves.
 Just a close-up of the sprigs and the gorgeous design on the Meg's Garden papers..
 For the inside I've simply cut two strips of paper and edged them with Martha Stewart's Doily Border Punch.
This card and the one in my previous post are similarly constructed and yet are very different.  When you find a design that you love, you can use it again and again and by just changing the paper or adding or changing a few elements, your cards will look very different and no-one would know they are actually the same design.
