Birthday card with country charm

My youngest daughter's birthday is this week and I made her this card.  It features a mother and daughter cutting flowers.  I received this image in a swap years ago and several times tried unsuccessfully to incorporate it into a card.  Third time is a charm!!  The pieces fell into place and I am really happy with how it turned out.
I used a large kraft card base, added the gingham decorative paper and layered the trimmed image on the upper portion.  I die cut the embossed greeting and layered it over the vintage seam binding that I added to the bottom section.  I love that this card has a bit of country charm!!
