PP254 Using Frames - Happy Birthday Mom!!

Saw this fabulous challenge over at The Paper Players with PP254 and just had to play as I love frames. Also, joining Seize the Birthday as they have "Anything Goes" this week. This card is for my sweet Mother who's birthday is today. I hope she has a fantastic day!
Here is my card:
Here I started by cutting out a Stitched frame using Kraft cardstock and Stitched Rectangles Dies by Simon Says Stamps. Next, I went on to create this background by using some of my newest inks I got from Simon called Jellybean, Maliblue, and Rosie Cheeks. Afterwards, I used my mister and sprayed some mixture of water and Perfect Pearls. To finish it, I added some white drops using my distress paint and a waterbrush.
Afterwards, I added this adorable sentiment from their Color of Fun release called: Big Scripty Greetings. Next, I got my hands on these gorgegous flowers from Altenew set called: Vintage Flowers that I recently purchased and created three different colored flowers in Pink, Yellow, and Blue. Final touch was to use some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

As always, if you haven't checked out the challenge sites, please go take a look to see fabulous inspiration and creativity.
