Woodgrain Birthday

This card was created with SU's Woodgrain stamp. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the SU's Itty Bitty Banners stamp and die set.  The ribbon is SU's Victoria 5/8" Crochet Trim. My SU demonstrator is Kathy Legan.   
I created the inlaid wood look by cutting "across" the stamped grain.  I created the pattern on the back, cut out the pieces, inked the edge of each piece and adhered them with just a little space between the planks.  The flower was created with Punch Bunch blossom punch (and flower making toolset) and with the Martha Stewart little leaves punch, inked with Tim Holtz distressed inks.  Those products are available at Joan's Gardens.  Brads and gold rhinestones complete this card.
