Heartfelt Creations - Happy Birthday Card

Wow, white is always harder to photograph than you'd think!
I'm entering this card into two challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Blog's Wednesday Challenge: Fantastic Florals
Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 320
and the card itself will be mailed to a friend of my mother's for her birthday! Although I usually have 3-dimensional flowers with Heartfelt Creations-inspired projects, in this case I need it to fit in a standard envelope.

Flowering Dogwood Branches Cling Stamp Set: HCPC - 3774
Flowering Dogwood Branches Die: HCD1 - 7130
Designer Dries Clear Adhesive: 159723
Metal Tip for Adhesive Bottles: 352854
Memento Dye Ink Pad - New Sprout: TSMP704
Memento Dye Ink Pad - Rich Cocoa: TSMP800
Fantastix Blending Tool: 247027

Other Materials
cardstock: white, folded to A2 size; Memento Dye Ink Pad: Dandelion and Love Letter; Silhouette Mint; 15mm by 60mm Mint stamp kit; red, blue, and yellow Mint ink; Sizzex Big Kick; scissors; and a MISTI

Use the Silhouette Mint to create a "Happy Birthday" greeting or use another "Happy Birthday" stamp you may own.

Stamp two branches with Rich Cocoa and die cut. Color the wood part of the branch with New Sprout, the flowers with Love Letter, and the flower centers with Dandelion, using your blending tool. Cut one of the branches into two trimmed pieces as shown in the pictures. Plan out the spacing for your card and stamp Happy Birthday. Glue the two branch pieces before the final, whole branch is glued. Glue that last piece to finish it up!
