Vintage Style Birthday Card

I recently saw a card, similar to this, with buttons for flowers. I loved it, but I didn't want the bulk of stacking buttons, so I thought...circles! I've always adored vintage circle flowers; maybe because they are simplistic. The Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack has vintage colors and patterns, so I put them together with my layered circle flowers, and I think they match up nicely.

   I used several circle punches to make these flowers. After punching the circles from the card stock, I bent the edges upward a little bit to give the flowers a little more shape. I added Pearl Basic Jewels for the centers. I got an idea of the flower placement, and then stamped the leaves (from Bright Blossoms stamp set) in Gumball Green, and then adhered the flowers with just a little adhesive in the middle, so the edges would remain turned up.
