Buckle & Bow Easel Card

I think this card could have been used for Valentines Day, Mothers Day or an anniversary but I've decided to give this as a birthday card.  What do you think?

 My easel card started off from a 14cm x 28cm piece of card which I have folded in half along the long side.  I have then folded one side in half again to form the easel.  The image for this card was a freebie from one of my magazines and I have matted this onto a piece of white card and then using scalloped edge scissors to go around the circle leaving a white border.  The image has then been decoupaged and the flowers have had Stickles added to thier centres.

To form the easel rest I have cut a piece of card to 14cm x 7cm.  Using the same backing paper as the main card I have scalloped the edges and fixed to the card after wrapping a ribbon around threaded with a buckle and a bow to complete.

This card has been entered into the following challenges:

Hotspot - Halle Berry
Stamps R Us - for the girls
ABC Challenge - P is for Pink
