Card Assembly:
  1. Cut two pieces of "Always" pattern paper. One 3 3/4"x 5" striped side vertically and the other 1 1/2" x 5" Paisley side.
  2. Adhere the paisley strip down the center of the striped layer. Adhere a piece of purple ribbon down the center of the paisley strip.
  3. Adhere layers onto a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Lavender Twilight and then a 4 1/2" x 5 1/2" card made from Witch Hazel Cardstock.
  4. Glue three Pansies into a cluster on the front of the card.
  5. Print "Happy Birthday" on Cream Cardstock and punch out with Multi Tag punch.
  6. Rub Pretty Petunia ink onto the edges of the tag. Adhere next to your pansies with foam dots.
  7. Fold Purple ribbon into thirds with the ribbon ends out.  Wrap the center of the ribbon a couple of times with the white string to form a bow.  String button to the white string and tie to the front of the bow.  Adhere to top of your card.
