The A6 base card of Calypso Coral was randomly stamped with the medium and smallest flowers in Calypso Coral ink. In Color markers in Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade and Pool Party were used to colour the large flower stamp direct, huffed  on and stamped on to Whisper White card. This was adhered direct to a mat of Lucky Limeade that was paper pierced around the edges using the Mat Pack grid and Paper Piercing Tool. Both layers were then popped up on dimensionals on the card front. The Happy Birthday sentiment was stamped in Calypso Coral ink onto Whisper White card and punched out with the 1-3/8″ Circle. Small flowers were stamped over the top of the sentiment in Pool Party ink and Basic Rhinestones added to the centres. Two Scallop Circles were punched out, one of Pool Party and one of Lucky Limeade. Each was pierced on each petal, snipped between the petals and shaped before adhering together. The flowers were popped up on dimensionals over a corner of the main image and then the sentiment was popped up on dimensionals in the centre of the flower.
