Floral Birthday Card

Here's my card for today. I wanted to use this Hero Arts flower that I bought in Minneapolis last summer. I used Distress Inks to color in the flower and Liquid Pearl to add some dimension in the center of the flower. The first time, I accidentally touched it before it was dry! ACK! Fortunately, I was able to use a tissue to wipe it off and start over. Because of so much trial and error in this card, it took a lot longer than I would have liked. At least it turned out okay!

Song of the day: "Addicted to Love" - Robert Palmer. I heard this at spin class and for some reason, I had a flash back to the time I watched the movie with the same title at a friend's house back when we were in middle school. I think it's funny how music brings back memories from a while back.
