PP195... Birthday Wishes

Hello Friends,

I fell in love with this week's colors from the The Paper Players Challenge.  I always like to see some shade of green because I immediately think of flowers, and that's pretty much the direction I went with.

My card
Here's a close-up:
I purchased this pretty embossing folder by Darice called Leafy Tree from my local scrap booking store, and decided to give it a whirl.  I started out with some Whisper White card stock base.  I took another piece of white card stock and embossed the card front.  Using Calypso Coral and So Saffron card stock, I used the Itty Bitty Shapers to punch out the flowers, and gave them some dimension by using the foam pad and stylus.  I then hand cut the small leaves using Pear Pizzaz card stock.  I wrapped the card with some ribbon and added a bow.  The sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping Cupcake Wishes, and was stamped in Early Espresso ink.  To finish off the details, I added a small pearl to each flower.
Other challenges:
