Happy Birthday for Our Daughter

Happy Wednesday everyone.  I am excited to share this card with you.  I really like how it turned out. And it was made for one of my favorite people -- our oldest daughter!  She had her 31st birthday recently, and I wanted to make something special for her.  Here are the details:

Size:  5" x 5"
Card stock:  American Crafts
Patterned papers:  My Mind's Eye
The card was cut using the Life's A Party Cricut cartridge at 5".  I just love the cards on this cartridge, and this one was perfect for her birthday.  I cut the front of the card twice, once in white and once in the red polka dot paper at 4 3/4" and popped it up using pop up tape.  I cut the front again using the multi-colored polka dot paper and cut just the middle part off to use as a stripe on the front of the card.
The "Happy Birthday" was cut at 2 1/2" using the Martha Stewart Birthday Cake Art cartridge, which I got for a great price a few months ago from Cricut Machine (like maybe $12.50?), and it is quickly becoming a favorite as well.
The large pink flower was cut using the Flower Shoppe Cricut cartridge at 4".  The other roses are mini roses made by Recollections or purchased from I Am Roses.  The leaves are a Martha Stewart punch.
The daisy is a button with the back cut off on top of some pretty blue satin ribbon.
To finish it off, I added three little pearls.
There ya go!

Hope you like it as much as I did.  And thanks for your comments.  Be inspired!
