CCC #4

Here is the challenge.... Kelly wanted us to use flowers....

I made this card for my mom's birthday. I used a card kit that I received from Molly in an element SS swap. I added the yellow paper but that's it. I used cuttlebug to "Swiss Dot" the mat. I used the Cricut to cut a 5 inch circle and then cut it at about 2 inches to make the not quite half circle. The Happy Birthday stamp I thought I would use white to stamp in - but it was too light - so instead of wasting the piece of paper I thought I would check my oranges to see which was better - I somehow managed to line it up with the white stamp and thought it looked cool - so my "mistake" turned into something nice. The flowers are a stack of three with a jewelled brad in the center. I think the orange ribbon finishes it off. I also used a card sketch from Splitcoast.
