My cousin's 80th birthday card

Really didn't have any ideas for this and it was getting desperate, as I want to post it tomorrow to give time to get there with all this awful weather about.

I'd finished prepping the packs for the workshop next Friday: the card to go with the basket is very simple, just a Wildflowers (Chinese looky-likey) die-cut in one of the colours from the basket, with a greeting over the stem.  Had cut most of the 6 x 6 squares for the basket from A4 card, so had a useable bit left, plus a long thin bit from beside the 6", so cut the flowers from that - being frugal, I lined the die up against one side, so had a 'triangle' of card left.  So I went back and cut more Wildflowers from the remaining triangles and paired them together to make drop-shadow die-cuts: several have gone to make individual cards, but I put three together to make this:



Greeting is from a used card, but it went so well.
