1 Create a 14.8cm-square card blank from pink cardstock. Cut cardstock strips measuring 1cm-wide in two different shades of pink and attach to the card.
2 Adhere three purple felt flowers onto the card blank. Stitch a stem below every flower using green embroidery floss and embellish each with a ribbon bow.
3 Make a decorative border. Adhere the border to the card and highlight with a black fineliner. Embellish with purple mini brads.
4 Stamp ‘totally special’ onto a pink cardstock circle measuring 4.5cm in diameter. Mount onto a purple cardstock circle and highlight with a fineliner. Attach the centiment circle to the card.
5 Use your computer and two shades of cardstock to print out a black text box with black borders. Mount all the text onto purple cardstock, highlight with a fineliner and add to the card.
6 Cut a piece of pink cardstock measuring 14.3cm-square and attach to the inside of the card.
