November Birthday Card

Since November is the busiest time of the year for Operation Christmas Child, I don't know that I will have time to make or post any other cards this month. Since I have sent cards to the senior citizens at my church for years, I had to make some so they won't be disappointed. I made all the same design just using different papers. This card was made using all scraps and basic tools.
Materials needed:
Patterned paper 4 1/4 x 5 1/2"
Coordinating patterned paper 2 x 5 1/2"
White card stock
a variety of scraps to punch flowers with
Secret Garden dies from SU!
Vintage Rose Garden stamps by Jennifer Ellory
Tangerine Tango 1/4" ribbon from SU!
Scallop Border punch from SU!

1. Punch along one of the long edges of the 2 x 4 1/2" paper. Adhere it to the other patterned paper about 1/2" from the bottom edge.
2. Stamp the birthday greeting on white card stock that is cut to about 1 x 4 1/4." Adhere the greeting to the bottom right of the scalloped piece leaving a small border around the edge.
3. Make the flower by cutting 3 different sizes from the Secret Garden dies or from flower punches. Punch a hole in the center. Layer the flowers and insert the brad in the center. Adhere the flower to the top left side of the card.
4. Ahere about 6" of 1/4" ribbon across the bottom of the scalloped piece.
5. Adhere the card front on to a card base and add a message inside the card.
