CAS Flower Squares Happy Birthday for SSS44

I've not been feeling well for a few days and my mojo has disappeared completely. I really wanted to make a card today and I found this lovely sketch over at the Sweet Stop blog. I thought I'd make things easy for myself by making a simple non stamped card using items from my stash. The SSS44 challenge was to include flowers with the sketch - not a problem for me! Click here to visit the Sweet Stop blog - the page will open in a new window.

The card measures 5 3/4" square and is from Craftwork Cards - it has pink glittery flowers all over it. I've had a few of these in my stash for ages, it's great to finally use one! I've also used Craftwork Cards yummy pearlescent CS in pink and gold and a sentiment circle embellie. The pink scalloped squares and the sentiment circle are all popped up. My flowers are pretty Prima hydrangeas which were part of my Christmas gift from Michelle. I've put gem brads in the centre of each flower. I added a pink Prima to the sentiment with a crystal in the centre to finish off the card.

CS: Craftwork Cards pink glittery card blank, Craftwork Cards pearlescent pink & gold CS
Ink: None
Tools: Plain & scalloped square Nestabilities dies
Embellishments & accessories: Prima flowers, Craftwork Cards sentiment circle embellishment, PaperMania gem brads, crystal, 3d foam tape
