Big Scallop Flower Birthday Wishes - Blogger Challenge

My goodness, I was making this card and decided to put some glitter in the middle of the flower - and - I spilled the entire container of dazzling diamonds all over my work and my desk, and my clothes.  What a dazzling mess!!  So, if this card is shining a bit more than it should, that's the reason.
I used the blogger sketch challenge that you'll find at this blog site

 Stamp: So Happy For You
Ink: Tangerine Tango
Papers: Ice Cream Parlor Designer Paper, Tangerine Tango, Very Vanilla, Old Olive
Accessories: Vintage Brads, Finial Press Embossing Folder, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Scallop Circle Die #2 (larger scallop), Scallop circle punch, Boho blossom punch, Green Glimmer Brad, Dazzling diamonds, 5/8" Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain Ribbon, Modern Label Punch

Flower: I cut 2 of the larger scallop circles, 1 scallop circle (smaller), and one Boho blossom flower.  For all of the flower sponged the edges with Tangerine Tango, & then snipped between each petal, then pinched them.  The one large scallop circle I did nothing else to.  The second one I snipped out one scallop and glued the edges together, overlapping the scallops on either side.  Two scallops were cut out of the small scallop circle and again glue the edges together overlapping the scallops.  This forms cone shapes.  To put the flower together, cut off some of the bottom of the 2 coneshaped flowers.  Layer them to form a flower, then insert a brad in the middle.  The leaves are cut freehand.
A closer look at the flower.

Pretty! Bet that flower is just "dazzling!!" LOL....I know how difficult it is to clean up all that glitter....probably took longer to clean it all up than it did to make the card! Thanks for joining in with the Bloggers' Challenge this week...great card!
