Birthday Card using George and Basic Shapes

Wow remembered at the last minute that I need a birthday card for a friend in Connecticut.  Grabbed my George and Basic Shapes and put together this simple but cute card.  I think she will like it.

This is an A2 size card.  All the paper is from my scrap pile except the pink card base (recollections).
I used my gypsy to grab a rectangle and sized it to 4 x 5.25.  Then used the george rounded square and sized three of them to fit across my card.  Cut out the flower and the star.  Cut the flower in half and made two bows.  I just used the star a little crooked. I cuttlebuged happy birthday on white cardstock and punched a piece of green patterned paper with a Martha Stewart punch.  Added a little stickles and that's all she wrote.
I am going to enter this in the Birthday Sundaes challenge this week.  It is a color challenge green, pink and white.  You can see all the entries HERE.
The video below shows the process as well as the first stages of my grand-daughter's senior year mini album.
