Birthday Blessing..

So many birthday of friends and families this month alone. so many b'day cards to create...

Today's card is for one talented friend. Actually her birthday was in June but she went travelling so i thought i might wait until she is back to make and send her card. 
Also will be entering this card into these challenges:
2. Lawnscaping Challenge #15 (Distressing sponsored by "Simon says stamp") - Unfortunately i didn't use any Lawn Fawn stamps on this card. I will make another card to enter this challenge using Lawn Fawn stamp.
3. The Crazy Challenge #79 (Embossing)

Anyway...for this card; I distressed the edges of my Very Vanilla CS and layer it to sponged Rich Razzleberry CS base. Layered another Rich Razzleberry CS with clear embossed image from Elements of Style set (SU!) to create a background. Stamped the flower image from Because I Care (hostess SU!)  twice on watercolour paper and one is coloured with SU markers +blender pen (Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Early Espresso). Cut+embossed the other watercolour paper with flower image with oval nesti and sponged the edges with Rich Razzleberry. Pop the cut flower into the oval nesti. Cut Su! DSP using top note die and trimmed to my liking. Stamped the Birthday Blessings sentiment from Blessings set(Verve Stamp). finish it off with ruffled lace.

The inside look of it before i jot down my handwriting message for her.
Sponged the edges with Close to Cocoa, Stamped quote from Blessings set (Verve Stamps), stamped and coloured the same flower image i used at card front. I stamped the sentiments from Studio Style set (PTI) on the same DSP. Finish off with 2 SU! pearls

Well hope you like my card.

Have a great weekend all...
