Sparkly Razzleberry Flower

Hi Everyone!
Well, I sure hope the rest of my day turns out better than my morning. Long story; but let's just say I really wish I could have hit the rewind button and started over! Oh well, nothing to do; but move forward right?

So here is my card for yesterday's MMSC challenge and SCS color challenge using Rich Razzleberry, Orchid Opulence and Old Olive. I rather liked this color combination and could definitely see myself using it again! I used Martha Stewart Pattern background stamps on the Orchid Opulence piece which I embossed with Versa mark and clear embossing powder. Next, I ran the two Old Olive pieces through my CB with the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder. The flower in the middle is from SU's Pick a Petal. I stamped 3 petals in Rich Razzleberry and 3 in Old Olive and then embossed each one with Iridescent Ice embossing powder, to give it that sparkle (that hopefully you can see!) I added the sentiment in the middle which is from a retired SU set called "Riveting" I used Rich Razzleberry ribbon at the bottom and added the two buttons with the "Happy Birthday" in the middle. Finally, I finished the card with some white dots around the card.
A lot going on in this card; but I hope you all like it. Have a great day!!

Those are nice colors together. Love the center flower as the focal point, draws the eye right to it. Wonderful take on the sketch this week at MMSC, thanks for sharing your card with us.
