Flower pot birthday card

I have never made a card with the oval share as I don't have any tools to cut the oval shape and a template. And of course I didn't want to create a oval shape with any engineering way. :-) So over the weekday I simply created a word doc with 4-5 different oval shapes and I got my cheapest(actually free) template which I have used in this flower pot card. I used some glitter in the middle and used a ticket for birthday greeting. I have used the lace trim smartly by cutting the trim in middle and stick it on both the side of paper. I am trying for GT call for Fairy tale challenge.

I made this cards watching Modern Marvels on History channel. The episode was on packaging, it also covered water bottle packaging. Can you believe, shaping the water bottle requires proper designing and the one I saw was inspired by Capsicum? As the vacuum in the bottle changes the shape of it, the bottom of bottle is not flat but concave(just like capsicum). :-)

Anyways my card is,
