Sending Smiles and Hugs on Your Birthday

When I saw the new challenge over at Sparkle and Shine with this photo inspiration and challenge #6 I thought it would be perfect to use some of my new crafty stuff I bought myself for a Happy Birthday card I need to send out. Also, joining Seize the Birthday this week
Here is my card:
I love this paper from My Mind's Eye (Fancy That) and since I had it out on my crafty table, I thought it would be perfect to use for this card. Also, used the new In Bloom: Maggie's Roses Cutaway along with vellum and gold foil paper. 

For the sentiments, I used the new Friends Cutaways along with Cream colored card stock from my May SSS Kit.  
Since I wanted to pop up the flower, I cut out 4 more vellum base roses and stacked them together. This way the adhesive doesn't show and adds some dimension to the flower. For the words, I stacked two together to raise it just a bit. Final touch added some gold sequins.

As always, if you haven't checked out the challenge sites, go check them out to see all the wonderful ideas and inspiration.

Stamp Set: The Big, the Bold and Friends (Winne&Walter),
