Have a Wonderful Day

I made this card for a friend's birthday and will enter it into the current Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenge.   I'm also entering this week's Winter Wonderland challenge which is 'Lots of Layers'.

Card blank: 7" x 7" kraft 
Stamps: Woodware Bubble Bloom 'Judith' (front) and 'Most Wonderful Birthday' (inside card)
Dies: Spellbinders Nestablilites Classic Ovals Small and Lacey Ovals
Punch: Woodware Crafty Edger 'Japanese Fan' 
Ink: Versafine Vintage Sepia
Other: Wink of Stella
Snippets: Paper and kraft card 

I attached the patterned paper to the card front and cut the flowers from another piece of the same paper to decoupage the bright flowers.   The sentiment was stamped onto a snippet of cream paper, die-cut and layered onto a kraft card die cut before being attached to the card front with foam pads.  I used Wink of Stella on the sentiment. 

As the card blank is kraft card, I cut a piece of plain paper for the inside, used the Crafty Edger on the lower edge, before stamping my sentiment and attaching it to the inside of the card.

Love the way you've used this marvelous DP as your very pretty corner design. Brilliant idea to use the same decoupage colored flowers over the DP, and of course, I'm loving that sweet bird. TFS
