Perfect Plum Birthday

Hi, everyone.  I hope you've had a good week.

For this card, I started out with a 5-1/2x8-1/2 piece of Perfect Plum card stock. (Edited 8-10-10:  Start with a 5-1/2x8-1/4 piece.  The original size will not fit in the envelope.  Oops!)  First, I scalloped one of the short edges.  Then, I scored at 3-3/4 from the end that is not scalloped.  The polka-dot paper is adhered to the inside of the card. 

Just a couple of other notes - the white Dotted Scallop Ribbon piece is on the front of the card.  I also stamped the solid image flower off once each time.  Also, once I scalloped the edge of my card, I had a little piece of a scallop left over, so I just trimmed the entire length of the card to make it look right.  So, it's a hair under 5-1/2".

Here's what I used:
