Floral Birthday Card

I'm finally feeling good to get back into the swing of
card making. I was ill last week, I think Christmas 
got the better of me. What a stressful time of the year!
 I made this card with an assortment of dies, pearls,
glitter glue and designer paper.
The flower is made from tissue paper, I found the 
instructions on this demo , it gives a better texture, I think!
My new year's resolution is not to get carried away with
buying so many dies. I sorted out my collection last night,
what a shock!
