A special birthday card

Sue - one of my Thursday crafting ladies, wants to make a card for a special friend tonight,
 so I thought that they could make this one - I think that this is suitable.
The colour combo is Basic Grey, Regal Rose and Silver.
The RR card stock is cut using the Top Note Die, then stamped in Versamark with the flourish
 from Everything Eleanor, then heat embossed with Silver EP.
The flower is die cut using the Fun Flowers die  with two flowers in RR and two in BG. 
 These are spritzed with water, crumpled,
then fastened together with a Vintage Brad, then left to dry before attaching to the card.
The Lacy Ribbon border is punched with RR card stock,
Siver 1" circles are punched and fixed to the back of the lacy border with Silver Brads.
The happy birthday (which has been stamped in Versamark using the sentiment
 from Party this Way is heat embossed with melon Mambo EP on BG card. 
 This is then punched out using the Word Window punch
and glued on top of a punched Silver Scallop Oval.
Hope she likes it!
