Silly little card

I made this silly little card this evening.  I generally do cards aimed at a birthday or holiday but this one is just meant to brighten someone's day... not sure I've ever done one of those outside of an SU party.  I definitely went in different directions than I usually do by both changing that "theme" and by using, yes, wait for it, FLORAL PAPER!  AHHHHH!  :)

Cardstock: Yellow (Stampin' Up), Shimmery Raspberry (DCWV)
Print paper: Pocket full of Posies (DCWV)
Stamps: Tricycle (Unity), Sentiment (Technique Tuesday)
Misc: Glitter (Martha Stewart), Copics (for buttons)

Paper Crafts Color Inspiration #9:

Card Patterns: Sketch 133:

Sweet Stampin': Flowers
Shopping Our Stash: No coloring (the paper I won this summer but I rarely use floral papers so this definitely something that could sit for a while.  The yellow paper is left from my son's birth announcements.  He's 4 now.)
Crafter's Cafe: GHWI #6: Buttons, Bows or Bling
Southern Girls: #28 Anything Goes
Fab n' Funky: #91: A Theme Hard for You
