Birthday Card for Florence

Here is a card that I made for my friend Florence. We use to work in the same building , she in another department. She got transferred and we kept in touch via email. We discovered that we both enjoyed rubber stamping and have taken a couple of classes together at The Paper Garden. She had a birthday a week ago and this is the card I made for her. The card is a dark olive green and I layered a piece of Basic Grey designer paper on top of that. Again I punched out a couple of butterflies from scraps of dp and used pop dots. On the oval I stamped some flowers from a Kodomo stamp set and stamped "happy birthday" over them.
On one of the blogs I follow, the stamper always finishes the inside of her cards with a layer of cardstock over the base. I like the way it looks so I did that with this card and used a strip of the dp and another butterfly at the bottom. Unfortunately, I wrote in the card before I took the picture. Hopefully what I did is visible enough. Florence loved her card and made a cute thank you card and sent it to me. She's a busy lady so we don't get to see each other much. She works full-time, has a family and on the weekends she works in her family's grocery store. Sometimes she finds time to stamp!
