Moxie Fab Challenge ~ Happy Birthday Stitched Rosette

Stopping in again with another rosette card for the Moxie Fab's Championing Award Medallions Challenge
This card is pretty straight forward and what you see is what you get!  The borders are stitched for a little bit of texture and color.  And a colorful shiny button was added for the center.     
The only "trick" to this card is a little hard to see from the pictures.  I wanted to do a rosette stack without it being too high.  As you can see from the side view, the rosette itself does not stand too high off the base.  To achieve this look, I only used a ring for the pink layer (no center).  I also placed the folds of the pink layer within the folds of the green layer.  This gives a flatter rosette without flattening the actual folds.     
I didn't have quite the right sentiment, so this one is printed.  Aside from wrestling with the rosettes and the glue gun, this card was pretty easy to put together.  And it was fun to work on something besides holiday cards:)  Thanks for visiting!
