Chocolate Upsy Daisy Birthday

Today I am sharing a birthday card with flowers stamped in two colors.  The  base card is Chocolate Chip, layered with Whisper White and Kraft card stock.  Stamping is done in Craft White and then Chocolate Chip ink.  
I've tried my hand at machine stitching a partial  border to accentuate the handmade look.
The ribbon is 5/8" white organdy.

The sentiment is stamped on a scrap of Kraft card stock that was already stamped with some white daisies.  The greeting is stamped in Chocolate Chip ink and then punched out with the large oval punch.  It is layered over a Chocolate Chip designer label punchout.  A hole has been punched with the 1/8 punch and ribbon has been pulled through and tied in a bow.
The bottom edge of the card is punched with the Pinking Hearts border punch.  I love the lacy look it   gives the card!
Inside the card I've stamped more daisies  and the sentiment in Chocolate Chip ink. The Pinking Hearts border has been repeated on the Kraft card layer.      This card measures 3 1/4" x 6  1/4"
Stamps: Upsy  Daisy, On Your Birthday
Inks: Craft White, Chocolate Chip
Paper: Kraft, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Large Oval and Designer Label punches, 1/8" circle punch, Pinking Hearts border punch. White Organdy ribbon, sewing machine.

Hi Diane! What a pretty card you made and... chocolate! What more can a girl want?! I don't usually care for brown, but I love the way you used all the different shades on one card. It's striking!

Very pretty, Diane! Way different from all the bright and sunny colors. I like the change up!
