Birthday Flowers for a Birthday Girl

Almost the weekend. I was supposed to volunteer today but too sick to do that. I am sure they wouldn't have appreciated my coughing, sneezing and blowing my nose all the time. I'm going to go to bed early tonight in hopes that I feel better tomorrow. I have to go to the award ceremony for the Senior Salute. I haven't had a lot of ambition to do anything today. But I managed a very simple card that isn't quite up to my usual standards. Given my handicap this week, I'll live with it.

The image is from Bugaboo called Flower Box. I colored the image with distress inks mixed with  champagne shimmer paint from Stampin' Up. In real life the flowers, leaves and butterflies really sparkle. I sponged a background using distress inks and MFT Mini Cloud Edge Stencil. The background paper is from the Paper Studio. The flourish is from MFT Fancy Flourish die. I die cut the image with MFT Inside and Out Stitched Rounded Squares. The sentiment is from MFT Birthday Cutie stamp set. I finished it off with more sparkly gems in the right top corner. I am entering these challenges:

I am off to get ready for bed. Definitely an early to bed night! Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Take care!
