A Happy Summery Birthday!

A very summery Birthday card made easy with bright sparkly pattern paper! The flower is a circle scallop punch and fan folded.. The blue layer is made from 2 scallop punches and the green is from one. Then I stickled the edges which ended up making the flower stiff, which means it will keep it's form better!

the flower are covered with clear sparkly buttons

This card is wonderful and bright. I love the flower you have created with the cupcake centre...such fun. Also really like how you have embellished each flower. Thanks for joining in our Celebration challenge at Unstampabelles. Just one thing though ..... one of our rules requires a link back to our blog....I think you have left us off the list above. :-)
