MC Feb/11 - Funky Flower HB card

OK so this card really evolved, used up some of my decorated paper stash and is pretty funky... hence the name Funky Flower. It's brighter in real life and it keeps making me smile.

The birthday sentiment is a Quietfire Design rubber stamp I seem to use a lot. BIG GRIN
