Birthday Card with a hint of Canadian

Hello fellow bloggie friends:) I have a birthday card to share with you all today. My brother asked me to make him a birthday card for his boss. He asked that the Canadian maple leaf be somewhere on it:) So I jumped on the Silhouette store and found this beauty.

Even though I was short on time,  I think this was the fastest card I put together:). I loved how it came out!

I used the "Happy Birthday" Cuttlebug folder on the maple leaf, to give it a bit more of detail along with some gems to give it some sass. The sentiment on the front of the card is from My Creative Time's Floral Sentiments.

On the inside of the card I used a smaller maple leaf and added the adorable classy girl silhouette from  My Creative Time's Classy Girl Furbaby Die set and My Creative Time's Classy Girl Accessories. This is the first time I used this set of dies, and I can assure you, it wont be the last. They are so much fun! The inside sentiment came form My Creative Time's Wow So Many Candles Stamp Set. I added some sequence to give it some sparkle:)

I had an extra maple leaf so I added it to the back of the envelope to give it a classy look:)

I would love to enter my card in the following challenges:
