Bloomin' Happy Birthday

This card was quite a "build" for me.  I normally don't work so hard on card design but this sketch challenge was just the right thing to keep my mind busy today.  My husband was roped into this endeavor by fussy cutting my "fresh picked" birthday girl for me.  I chose to use bright colors which caused me troubles when I needed to match up card stock.  The dotty black background paper gave the colors some pop and also gave some space for the eyes to rest.  In my world tiny polka dots are a "neutral". ;)
