Get Carded - Another Simple Birthday Card

Hello! Another birthday, another simple but fun-to-make birthday card. This card is identical to the one I talk about herejust the colors are different:

The card was made using the following:

-window card
-mat board square painted with blue acrylic paint
-hand-dyed cotton string (dyed with Easter egg dye)
-flower shape cut from a vintage matchbook
-vintage button
-"over the whole harbor" cut from 1930's grammar book
-"happy birthday" stamped with blue StazOn ink

Here's a close-up of the flower design:

Since the matchbook was from a seafood restaurant, and since the card recipient and her family own a sailboat, I felt that the words I added fit.
