Forever Friends Card

This is a flip open round card that I've made for a very good friend of mine. I've used various techniques in creating this card. I've tried my best to keep the colour pastel here. As most of you might have known, pastel are really not my cup of tea.
Here's are the techniques involved.
1. I've stenciled and masked some daisies to create the background of the card.
2. I've used the Chalkboard Technique to create the rose in the center.
3. I've used the Clear Embossing Effect technique to create the flourish on the right.
4. To add some some details, textures and dimensions to it, I've embossed on the word "Forever", used some dimensional stickers, add a ribbon with a metal small buckle, create a chipboard "friends"tag, add some fibers and doodled on it.
