Floral Bday Card

Created this birthday card with a floral theme. Used the Stampin' Up stamp true to its name, Secret Garden, as a 'Secret' stamped in white under the embossed layer. Used a SU punch to punch out flowers from a magazine page. Used white cardstock & colored cardstock for the flowers for sturdiness so I could pop up the petals. Used MISTI tool to stamp the birthday sentiment.

paper:  cardstock - greens, purple, red, white, yellow
