A very girlie Birthday card

Spring.. Blooms.. (Other than the couple of days where it felt like summer and bouts of allergies, aside)
So wanted to make a girlie card..
Some time back I had bought this blooming meadow HA stamp, which I thought would be perfect to try out..
Last few cards were very rusty ones.. So soft colors came to play..
Here is the card..



And here is the story......
HA Bloooming meadows stamp, stamped in multiple versafine dew drops chalk inks  on glossy paper lightly distressed using worn lipstick, sides distressed again to make it darker,

For the little flowers, I punched out mini scallops from crepe paper ribbon, ruffled them up and made them into little blooms, a mini brad holding each flower.
Happy Birthday was die cut out from white scrap paper, shaded in similar tones, using a sizzix die.
Wanted to add a couple of butterflies, but decided against it, since I thought it would make the card very crowded.
This matching paper from recollections garden florals paper pack,just fit perfectly, I feel.
2 more pearsl, and I guess I could call the card done..
