Happy Birthday Spring Foliage

I love putting soft pink and olive together on a card...it makes me happy!  Today's card is one of those!  I used my new Creative Expressions Spring Foliage die(not sure how new it is...but new to me), along with the Simon Says Stamp Happy Birthday die to make a Spring flavored birthday card...
I thought the leaves of this die were so pretty, and that the die came with the ability to die cut the pretty flowers four at a time...made this die a part of my collection:)!!  I die cut and layered the leaves, flowers, and sentiment.  The leaves and flowers on the right is part of the whole die, with lots of leaves cut off to make it look a little different!  I adhered the flowers  to the leaveswith small glue dots, and then more dots to attach the branch with leaves and flowers to the card panel.  I dotted the flowers with Tonic drops and stamped a "happy" from the Altenew Birthday Builder stamp set.  I wasn't happy with the "empty space", so I used the same olive colored cardstock of the leaves and stamped the MFT Stamps Pinstripe Background stamp with versa mark  and white embossed, using the striped pieces on the top and bottom of the card.  The card is 4" across, I loved the leaf hanging over the side, so it is a bit more narrow than an average card, so it will fit into a regular envelope. Here's a close up...
Pink and olive happiness...such fun!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
