Happy Birthday... Pretty ~but humorous

One of the teachers at school has a birthday next week and I wanted to make her something pretty yet humorous since that's sort of the way she is.  I decided to do 3 panels across and make the flower in the center my focal point.  I layered 3 floral stamps and placed dimensional foam in between to pop them up.  They're highlighted with Crystal Stickles.  Then I took a branch punch and punched some black leaves which are painted with Gunmetal Stickles.  The humorous part is the phrase inside. 

I will be entering this card in the Party Time Tuesday challenge.
