Curly Cute Birthday Card

Isn't it just amazing how much fun you can have with a few die cuts and a rubber stamp?  A while back I had been cutting out flowers for a different project and I had cut one of those big sunflowers in half.  I thought how fun it would be to put it on a card sort of popping out from the back of something.  And I put that idea aside until today!

I die cut the yellow flower and I cut it in half.  I taped the two halves together.  I added a circle in the center and then wasn't sure where I was going to go with it.  Did I want an image or did I want words?  If I used an image would it distract from the sun?  SO I decided to go with words.  Then the issue of what size wording.  I wanted something long so I checked what I had for words and found that the happy birthday from the "Curly Cute" set was perfect for this.  I set it on the card and set the sunflower behind it and was liking what I saw.  But it still needed something.  And that is where the butterflies came into play!  I added some pearls on the butterflies and the center of the sunflower and it was just enough!  It was a fun and quick birthday card to make!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
