Happy Birthday using Cricut Flower Shoppe Cartridge

I think that Flower Shoppe is one of my all time favorite cartridges!  I really enjoy playing with the different cuts on it.  I made the flower for this card by layering several cuts  - pretty much like they show you in the handbook.  I did use a large stylus to give the petals some dimension and I also inked everything with black ink.  The papers I used are all from the DCWV Lemon Flowers Stack - I love this stack!  I also used the Tim Holtz Distress tool around all of the edges of the patterned paper.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up and the flower center is We R Memory Keepers set with the Big Bite.  The bling is from Way2Scrap.  For this card I used a sketch from the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge - I have never used a sketch before, it was fun!


Here is a close-up of the flower:
