CAS birthday/flower card

This must be one of the quickest cards I have ever made. I cut out the leaves and flower with an MD die and MD papers. For the background I used the same paper that I used for the leaves. All I had to do to finish the card was to add a rose from my stash and stamp the StudioLight birthday sentiment in black Versamark ink.

With this large piece of patterned paper, I may be pushing things a bit as regards "white space" but since the card as a whole is definitely CAS, I'm entering this card into this week's challenge at Less is More. One more card towards the goal of 1000 entries!

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Ooh La La – Punches/dies
Marianne Design Divas – Bloom and grow (use flowers + any MD)
Simon Says Stamp – Dies and/or punches
