Super Simple Birthday Wishes

Super simple cards for birthdays are good to have on hand.  Maybe you don't really know the person but really want to give them a handmade card...or maybe you want to make a bunch to package together to give as a gift.
Here is one idea for a simple layout you can make quickly:
If you scroll down through the pictures you can see two versions with the same layout but different colors.  Just a small detail changes.
 Card details:
Lace - Dollar Tree
Sentiment - Studio G stamped onto SU Whisper White
(the shape is a PDC shaplie cut with my Silhouette)
 The flowers from the card above and below are ones that I crocheted but can easily be replaced with a paper flower.  I sat down watching TV one day and crocheted a whole bunch at a time in different colors so that I would have them on hand when I needed them.
The metal flower is a spacer I bought from Stamp and Create attached with a brad from my stash.
 The only difference with this card is the DP is done using SU Rose Red and the flower has a button from PTI Pure Poppy attached with black twine.

Thanks for hanging out with me!
I am adding these to the following challenges:

Milk Coffee Challenge: Birthday
