Green Floral Birthday Card

I just had to make one more monochromatic Card in green because I needed a birthday card for my Niece this month and her favorite color is green.  I gathered together several green scraps and got to work.
I started with stamping the beautiful flowers on two different colors of green and cutting them out.  I took two pieces of larger green scraps, adhered them together and used my Simon says stamp bundle of stitched shapes die to cut out the main background mat.  I used another pattern paper scrap to die cut the pretty lattice lace die.  I added it to the background layer and then layered the flowers in a row along the joint of the two layers.  I intertwined the flower petals on either side.  I set the center flower aside.  I used Happy Birthday stamp from HOTP called Birthday Greetings.  I stamped in Green and then in again in Versamark clear ink and added clear embossing powder over the green and heat set.  I added the center flower onto a foam square to pop it up and got it added to the card.  I added enamel dots to the centers of each flower and added a larger size to the center one. I took my spectrum noir clear sparkle marker to brush the lines coming out from the enamel dots plus I added sparkle to each of the dots on the center flower petals as well.  I then decided to sparkle brush over any of the lattice lace die cut that is showing.  I wish you could see all of the sparkle in the photo, it really makes a huge difference in person.
For the inside a grabbed another pretty green scrap that came from the same pattern pack as the lattice lace cut on the front.  I used my Simon says stamp bundle of stitched shapes again to cut that mat.  Using the same stamp set as the front I stamped celebrate in black and it's your day in green.  I added another stamped and cut flower down in the corner. This time instead of an enamel dot I took my water brush and used the green ink I stamped with to color in the flower center.  I then added clear sparkle over that and also again dotted the dots with sparkle on the petals.
