CST challenge

Hi Everybody,
Well, I fianally got busy and did some crafting.  I needed a Birthday card this month for a good online friend so I decided to enter it into the CST challenge (make a birthday card).
This card is a little larger than the regular size, maybe about 5 X 6 1/2, not sure anymore.  I used a SU canvas backgound stamp and close to cocoa ink.  Sponged the edges.  I used a nestability for the scallop circle and my fiskars circle cutter for the inner circle and a nestabilities die for the leaves.
The sentiment is a Fiskars clear stamp set designed by Cloud 9.
I made the flower from pink paper and the how tos are from a video that is in the link further down the page.
I use a Fiskars clear stamp designed by Heidi Grace to stamp the flowers.
The little stamens are made with a Punch Bunch punch.

Here is the inside of the card.

This is a 7 flower pop up and here is the link on how to make it.  The video in the link shows how to fold the paper to make the flowers.
This card is a little time consuming, but the end results are really worth the effort.

I hope you liked my card today and try to make one yourself.  If you do, and have any questions, please email me and I will try to answer them.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a great week.

I have the instructions to make the insides around here somewhere!
Yours is beautiful!
Is it flat enough to fit through the mail slot!?
