Birthday Sundaes Challenge #45

Well I missed last weeks challenge at Birthday Sundaes. I got my card base made but totally ran out of time to get it finished. But I've got this weeks done!!! This week is to 'Get Messy'. Create a birthday card using lots of inking, paints or mists and to include a birthday wording/sentiment on the front. I used the Ribbons and Rosettes cartridge to make Flower 6 on page 53. I cut it at 2 inches-4 times. I folded it and glued the edges together. I cut some circles and glued one to the bottom and one to my flower on top, then glued it to the rosette. This flower is from Pink Paislee. It is a (Mist)-A-Bles Muslin Flower. I misted it and the rosette with Popsicle Glimmer Mist. I've been trying my hand at making some stickpins. I decided I just had to add a couple to the flower. The pins themselves I picked up at Michaels a good while back and the crystals are from Hobby Lobby. Picked them up at half off.  The doilie is from Wilton that I picked up at Walmart. I misted it with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz. I had a bit of the pink Prima Say it in Pearls left, so I cut it apart and added that to my card. The bg pattern paper is from s e i and the sentiment is from the Handwritten Notes stamp set from Papertrey Ink. I inked the edges of the pattern paper and my card base. Hubby said he likes it, but that I'll never be able to get it into an envelope. Told him I guess I'll just have to make a box for it. Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)
