Color Pop Birthday Card

This week's Make it Monday challenge for Papertrey Ink is to make a card using the "color pop" technique. I'm not sure I completely understand the technique except that from the looks of the card in the video and the other cards I've seen entered, you want to have a mostly neutral card with just a "pop" of color.
I used the "happy" die from PTI's "One Big Happy" set along with the flower and leaves stamps and dies from that set. Then I used the "Birthday" die from the "Birthday Cheer" die set. The pretty pink paper is also from PTI.
I die cut the "happy" die multiple times to be able to make a background with it. I adhered the die cuts with my Zig glue pen. Then I added the "Birthday" sentiment and stamped the leaf stamp in the lower right corner. I die cut the flowers from white card stock and stamped them before adhering the smaller yellow flower with my Zig glue pen and the larger blue flower with some foam tape to add a touch of dimension to this CAS card.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
