A duo of free stamp sets to create a duo birthday card

Am I cheating? I've combined two of the free stamp sets on my card today. You can of course use the punched flowers without the Polka Dot Punches stamps or add your own embellishments in place of them if you decide to go just for the Congrats set.

I started with a Pretty in Pink card blank and added Rose Red and Sweet Always Designer Series Papers. 
Whisper White narrow grosgrain ribbon covers the join of the papers. I stamped the Congratulations sentiment using Pumpkin Pie ink on Whisper White card. The "little bit older" sentiment was stamped with Rose Red ink onto Whisper White card. (There are another 5 phrases that come with this Congrats set). A corner rounder punch was used on the ends of the sentiments that would remain visible. Using Old Olive ink on the same shade card I stamped and punched the 5 petal flower twice to create leaves. The flowers were created with Pumpkin Pie ink onto the same shade card and Rose Red ink onto the same shade card. The flower and leaf combos were secured onto the sentiments using Earth Elements brads. These tags were stuck to the card with dimensionals.

Keep stampin'
