Co-Worker Birthday

I made this bright, fun card (which probably wasn't as bright as it shows in these pictures) for a co-worker's birthday.  She loves pink and green.  It was a lot of fun to make.

Here are the details:

Finished size:  5" x 5" gatefold -- I cut my paper 5" x 11" and then scored it at 3 1/2" and 8 1/2" (I think, and I don't have the card here with me obviously.).  I used a border punch on both edges of the 11" strip.    I added patterned paper from a K and Co. stack to both sides.
Cardstock:  Coordinations and Bazzill
Label:  Small label with "Happy Birthday" on it -- Nestabilities; Pink/blue frame label:  Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge cut at 4" and embossed
Rosette medallion flower:  instructions by spottedcanary can be found here on You Tube; circle and scalloped circle on top are punches; cupcake is a chipboard piece I found in my stash that worked perfectly
Butterfly:  McGill punch and then covered in Glossy Accents
Gems/Pearls:  From my stash
Ribbon:  Unknown (satin) -- If you look at the second picture, you can see how the ribbon is not really attached to the bow, but when the card is closed, it appears that it is attached.

I've also shown a close-up of the medallion and the embossing on the label.

Hope you are inspired and that you like it.  If you have questions, email me, or let me know in a comment.  Thanks for your kind words that make my day!
