Art Philosophy flower wreath and matching card

Today I made a Birthday gift and matching  card  for my dear friend.  The flowers are cut from Double sided paper from page 70 of the Art Philosophy cart at  2.5 inches.  I used double sided paper.  I love making these rolled flowers.  
 

I used a small green foam wreath that I got in the clearance at my local M's.  There were two and both were broken so they were only 50 cents each.  I wrapped the foam wreath with cheap white ribbon.  
For these flowers you start at the end and roll.  I am using the Cuttlebug quilling roller.  If you don't have one of these get a quilling pen at the craft store.  The end inserts around the paper so you can roll it easily.  On a 12 x 12 sheet I get 16 flowers.  You can see the stack of flowers in the back.  Once you roll them you release them and they loosen up and then I glue them with the glue gun.  
Here is a closeup of the flowers glued with glue gun to the wreath. 
I tied a wide ribbon at the top 

I then remembered a sketch I had seen for a birthday card challenge at Celebrate the Occasion and thought it was perfect for the scraps I had left from the flowers.  The card is 5 x 5 and the squares are cut 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 inches.  I used three flowers and cut out 3 leaves with a punch.  Stamp is a $1 stamp from Michaels.  
Here is the sketch.

I am entering the card in the Celebrate the Occasion challenge - Birthday Sketch card
