The dark side of flowers

Here I am again, with a bit of a twist on a floral birthday card. I wanted a slightly darker theme (plus this was one of the challenge themes)whilst using a pretty feminine design.So I took a lilac flower motif, traced it onto red paper and cut it out using a craft knife (not a quick job!) and added a little metal 'handmade' brad to the top right. This was mounted onto a dark grey patterned paper, and then onto a card blank covered with red paper. A 3D birthday sticker was added to the bottom of the flower.
