Glitter Flower Birthday Card

Here is another super easy card I made for the Cards For Soldiers.  Again, standard A2 size.  The patterned paper is from a My Mind's Eye stack I got at Costco last year.  The flower was cut out of light blue Bazzill at 3.5" (blackout) using my Cricut machine with the beloved George cart.  I used Mod Podge applied with one of those foam brushes to cover the flower and then covered it with Crystal Ultrafine Transparent glitter from Art Institute.  (I would normally use my Xyron when applying loose glitter, but I was making 24 flowers total and was too cheap to buy more refills!  LOL)  The stamp is from the Stampin' Up set "Circle of Friendship" stamped on white cardstock and punched out with a circle punch.  The ribbon is from M's.  I used a pop dot to attach the sentiment to the flower.  Can't get much simpler than this!!
