Rosette Birthday Card

Happy Fourth of July to all of my fellow Americans!  I am so thankful for my freedom.  While the Good Ole' USA has its problems, I love this country!  I wish I had a patriotic card to share with you today, but I don't usually make cards for the Fourth of July, so a birthday card will have to do.  This is one I made for a co-worker several weeks ago.  I'm just now getting around to posting it.  Here's how it was made:

Size:  5 1/4" x 5 1/4" (I trimmed the bottom with an EK Success border punch)
Card Stock:  Recollections; Coredinations
Patterned Papers:  My Mind's Eye
Happy Birthday Medallion:  I found these on clearance at Michael's a few weeks ago -- great for cards!
Scalloped Circle:  Nestabilities
Rosette:  Handmade.  (Go here to see a video tutorial on how to make the rosette.  Thanks Creations by Christina.)  I added a felt flower that was in my stash on top, as well as a Recollections rose
Leaves:  Spellbinders die
Roses:  Recollections and I Am Roses
Green circle border:  Martha Stewart Double Edge Bangle Chain punch
Pearl Trim:  From my stash

Thanks in advance for your comments.  They keep me going!
