Sister's Birthday Card

I spent a lot of time thinking about my sister's birthday card... so much time, that I actually finished it on her birthday, and got it out in the mail to her 2 days later (because of the weekend).

This is one of those cards that I added a detail, then another, and another.  Then more details on top of those.  I'm thrilled with how this card turned out.  I believe it's one of my best.

The card base is a Circle Framelits card cut with an additional flap.  I used Gingham Garden DSP and Washi tape.  I cut a scalloped circle to cover the yellow front flip area, a strip of punched ribbon made into a 3D medallion and used the Artisan punch to cut out the Happy Birthday on top of the medallion.

The flowers come from the Secret Garden stamp set, stamped, die cut, and folded to give dimension.  I added a bit of Washi tape down the right side of the first inner panel.

The Happy Birthday is framed at the top and bottom with more of the Gingham Garden DSP.  The main colors on this card:  Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Melon Mambo, Island Indigo, and Tempting Turquoise.
