Simply wonderful birthday

I am really happy with the way this card turned out!  I followed the sketch from Card Patterns #131, used Autumn colours from the challenge over at Secret Crafter and made it into a birthday card for Birthday Sundaes.

I have bitten the bullet and used one of those paper flowers that are all the rage at the moment and I see everyone is using them so I thought I would give it a go - I didn't realise that the are quite bulky and I would hate to see what happens to it in the post - maybe I will post one to myself!  I am sure the postal machines hate envelopes marked "handmade card" LOL!!!  anyway here is a close up of the flower, butterflies and swirl.
materials - Core 'dinations brownie and sunflower cardstock; Bo Bunny 'flutter butter' papers; MFT dienamics and stamps - polka dot greetings, Bella inspirations butterfly stamp; Stazon timber brown ink, Color Box chalk - chestnut roan; Sizzix decorative swirl die; Provocraft circle dies and archaic writing embossing folder; Kaisercraft paper blooms - coconut.
Thanks for looking.
