Sunshine Flower Birthday Card

Happy Tuesday everybody! I wanted to share a very springy birthday card that I created this week.  Since the weather has recently turned warmer (at least for a short time), I wanted to make something cheerful. 

I used DCWV Sweet Blossoms paper stack.
I used a Martha Stewart punch on the edge of the Sentiment and added a
pretty little piece of ribbon with some pearls on it.
I found this great tutorial on Pinterest on how to make these cut tissue flowers.
All you have to do is use your scalloped punch and punch about 10 scalloped circles.
Next make a small hole in the middle of the flower, then add a pretty brad to hold it all together.
Last, just fluff a little and maybe add a few wrinkles for a more realistic effect.
Sooo easy, but sooo cute!
You can even add another color of tissue paper and maybe use a smaller scalloped circle to add some color and a little more dimension.
I just love these! 
 So many ideas for their use that I can't wait to try.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
