Happy Birthday with rolled flowers - Card Patterns Sketch

Hi!  I hope you're having a good weekend.  Mine has been good, except for a sinus infection.  But...I didn't let that keep me away from my craft table :)  One of my stamping buddies came over to stamp with me yesterday, even though she's fighting an ear infection.  Yes, we were quite the duo, huh Cheryl?

Okay!  Back to the challenge.  I'm playing along with the Card Patterns Sketch 154.  You can take a look.

I created a card that measures 4 3/4" x 9".  It will fit in a business size envelope - well, maybe.  You see, I've added some rolled flowers.  Hmmm....
Anyway, here's my take on the CP sketch.

Oh, I love the colors of Kraft and Baja Blue together.  I used several pieces of dsp from Stampin' Up!'s Elegant Soiree`.  I think the color of the leaves is Soft Suede.  I used a piece of kraft colored felt in a PTI die for the border.  So soft!
I sprayed the entire card with some Pearl glimmer mist, but I couldn't get it to show up in my photos.
Thanks so much for taking a look.  I hope you'll leave a comment!
