Stampin' Up! Awash with Flowers and I create a Birthday Card

Ok, so I finished my assignment tonight (yay!), and I treated myself with a little bit of crafting!
This card is a Crumbcake base, layered with some Real Red and a piece of Calico from an enviro bag that I cut up (for this purpose). I sewed it on using my sewing machine and set it aside. I stamped the flower (which is actually 2 petal images layered atop each other) on Real Red card, and cut around them. I did the same with the leaves, but they are in Old Olive. I stamped my sentiment, which is from a retired set called Congratulations in black in and tied a bow using some vanilla seam binding ribbon. I stuck my flower to the front of the card and added a button to the centre. 
I am entering this into 3 challenges, the first is the Case Study Challenge, with October Muse Niki Estes. I have used her beautiful flower as inspiration, as well as the use of fabric, and the colours. I also used the sketch from Card Patterns Finally, I'm entering this into the Moxie Fab Texture Challenge :)
Now, it's my bed time, and I plan on sleeping in tomorrow, hopefully no late nights early morning combinations for a few days :)
Happy Stamping!
