Happy Happy Birthday to You

Now that I get my Mother's Day cards done, I can turn to the birthday card for my dear darling friend.  She love bright colors and I wanted to make her a card with Stella paper packet, but instead, Dotty for You found its way to convince me to use it.  The sketch comes from Clean and Simple blog:

Five circles.  How can I make it pretty?  I've turned them into five cute flowers and I think they look awesome:

What's better than flowers with a rhinestone?  Layers of flowers with a rhinestone!  Because I wanted to follow the sketch where the circles come in different sizes, I used both the Just Blooms Paper Shapes - Paradise Paper Flowers and the retired paper flowers.  The retired ones came in Colonial White, so I sponged them into the colors I wanted using sponge daubers and ink pads.  The two kinds of flowers blend in pretty well.  Don't you think?

Materials used:
1.  Dotty for You paper packet
2.  Sweet Leaf cardstock
3.  Just Bloks Paper Shapes - Paradise Paper Flowers
4.  Card Chatter - Birthday stamp set
5.  Olive Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad
6.  Sunset Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad
7.  Lagoon Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad
8.  Honey Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad
