Flower Cluster birthday card

This card 'christens' a new sentiment stamp, used the same day as I bought it - unheard of!  I took a sheet of 6" paper from a pad (Authentique) for the background and stamped the sentiment (Hobby Art) in teal.  Then I stamped the script flowers in the same colour (Craft Stamper freebie stamp), cut out and inked the edges.  They were arranged in three layers, one flat to the card, one on 1mm foam squares and the third on 2mm foam.

I die-cut a swirly flourish (Memory Box), cut it in half, tucked the pieces behind the flowers.  Then I used a Martha Stewart punch for the fronds and tucked those behind too.  Pearls in the corners to finish :-)

This is one of my favourite stamps for cards (yes, even though it's a flower!), if I ever lose it I will be in trouble!
