Celebrate flower birthday card

So what do you do when you wake up in the wee hours of the morning, it's dark outside, you can't sleep........you make cards!

I was looking forward to sleeping in today but it just didn't happen.  I went to work and turned out this pretty card using two different stamp sets from Unity Stamps; Tiny Grained Banners" and "Celebrate in Style", which comes with the sentiment and the flowers that I fussy cut and glued to the center of a doily which, by the way, I edged with a pale pink ink.  The butterfly strip is from the DCWV Blossoms and Butterflies stack. 

Let me show you a Unity image of the tiny banners below, so you can see how I used them a little differently on the sentiment.  Also I did some embossing with my Cuttlebug on the base layer of paper.   Love how it turned out.  Oh, and the inside is stamped with Happy birthday.  Now maybe I can go take a nap!
