Happiest Bithday? - Maybe

You never know if someone is having their happiest birthday or not but I always hope that a hand made card will help brighten the day.  My card today was inspired by the Seize the Birthday Challenge with a topping of flowers and the Creating Pretty Cards Challenge #35.

Normally I go into a play by play of how I made the card but I'm going to try something different today.  As always, if you have a question about anything I've done on a card, please don't hesitate to ask in the comments or send me an e-mail.
