Knowing what she likes, helps...

I belong to this Card Ministry group that meets once a month.
Way back I started to collect names, address's, phone numbers, emails, etc.
I decided to ask and keep track of other things as well...hobbies, favorite stamp images, favorite colors, etc.
I try to send a card for every ladies birthday and it has come in handy to know what they like.
This lady has an October birthday so you would think Autumn colors...but they are not her favorite.

The base card is blue polka dot card stock with a layer of dark blue card stock then a layer of white linen card stock.
Over to the BigKick with Sizzix Tim Holtz "Watering Can" die and "Tattered Flower Garland" die.
You can see what card stocks I used for the flowers and can.
The flowers were put together with white button brads.
The verse from Altenew's "Floral Frame" set was stamped with Distress barn door ink to match  the red flowers.
The watering can was glued to the card front and the flowers were applied with glue dots.
To finish I added Nuvo navy blue Crystal Drops.
