  3. Stamp "Celebration!" on tan swirl paper and trim to 2 3/4"x1/2". Mat with brown/black swirl paper with 1/16" border and glue to the lower right. Stack a 2" and 3" flowers and insert a brad to secure them to the border as shown. Glue the border to the card front as shown.
  4. Inside the card: Cut a 1"x5" brown/black swirl paper, ink the edges and glue across the inside, 1 1/4" from the upper edge.
  5. Stamp "happy birthday!" on tan swirl paper and then trim to 2 1/8"x1 5/8". Ink the edges and glue centered on a 3 3/4"x2 1/2" pink dot paper. Ink the edges. Secure a layered small brown flower to the upper right with a silver mini brad, then glue the sentiment as shown.
