Round Chrysanthemum Just For You Birthday Card - WMSC26

I haven't made a round card in ages and I love shaped cards so I really enjoyed taking part in this weeks Waltzingmouse Stamps sketch challenge.  Here's the sketch:
My card measures just under 4 3/4" and I used my large Coluzzle circle template to cut the circles of CS and the semi circles of patterned paper.  I glued the papers to the front circle, applied a strip of ribbon and then scored a line on the back circle and attached the two circles together to form the card.  I then sliced a tad off the bottom so the card stands up.

I've stamped the flowers and leaves on patterned papers, sponged all the edges and cut them out.  I attached the two flowers together with a gem brad.  The flowers are popped up with 3d glue dots.  I die cut the sentiment with a Labels Trio die, glued it to the card front and trimmed off the excess, following the curve of the card.  I then gussied up the sentiment with three punched flowers with crystal centres.

Then I decorated the inside of the card and glued some patterned paper to the envelope flap.  Happy I've used some more patterned paper from my big stash!
