Bloomin' Beautiful Birthday

 This over-sized crinkled flower is the focal point for this card.  Naturally,  card this size can't be mailed without extra postage but I'm intending to attach it to a gift and hand deliver it. 

The soft tones of the Crisp Cantaloupe and the bold neutral of the Basic Gray allow these two colors to really make a statement.
 You can easily make these 3D flower. I have a video teaching you how. CLICK HERE to learn.
I stamped the sentiment directly on the designer paper.  I added some pearls to lend credence to the texture of this card and play up the vintage feel.
