Floral Birthday

Hello!  Today I'm popping in to share a card I had created for my Mom's Birthday... I really wanted to make something pretty for her...

I had so much fun watercoloring the rose images from Winnie & Walter with distress markers and a brush!  I then die cut it with a circle and created a circle frame with MME patterned paper, accetate and sequins.  I then used more MME paper for the background and stamped my birthday sentiment.  Pssst - I also have a secret to share... this card actually has a boo boo on it... when I first stamped my sentiment it was in the lower left hand corner, and it was crooked... grrrr!  I couldn't fathom getting rid of the beautiful paper so I covered it up, by changing my card design, adding the gold leaves and a few sequins to the outside.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Challenge: April Showers Brings May Flowers
Gossip Column Challenge: Winnie & Walter Color Crushes... I used the fifth dress in the article with all of those luscious gold stripes as inspiration and the pinks and greens were also shown in the colors of the challenge. 
Virgina View Challenge: Cards with Dimension

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
