A Round Happy Birthday

Good Afternoon all!
I'd like to share this card that I made with you all!
It was for a friend at works mum.
The lady is a certain age & I have include some self adhesive glittery numbers to attach 
but for the purpose of my blog, we have left them off!

It's quite a simple round card, made with pearlescent cardstock.
I cut two circles using my Scalloped Circle Grand Nesties, 
I scored one so it could fold & adheresd them together.
I added a smaller scalloped circle in pearlescent pink.
The sentiment was cut using my Nellie Snellen framie die.
It was printed onto the white pearlescent card.
 The font I used is Sunshine Poppy.
You can download it for free here!
It's one of my favourite fonts!
Embellishment wise, I added some flat backed pearls around the pink circle,
a flower which was hand made by Lee AKA Crafty Loops (Thanks Lee!)
& some  leaves which were punched from the pearlescent card stock
the coloured with a promarker.
I also added a little chiffon ribbon double bow.
The inside of the card is decorated too but sadly the photo was blurry
& I have already handed the card on so can't get another!

I'd like to enter this card in a few challenges as listed below:
