A glittery birthday!

Hi friends,
So I am back again to share a card with you....I have made this card keeping in mind a couple of challenges...Since,being back from  my vacation I have been so busy with my children's school work and exams that even though  had been meaning to share some of my work I just could'nt find the time to do it and I really regret the fact that I could not time find time to play along the Let's get trendy now 3 challenges hosted by some really creative and talented ladies (Yvonne,Amy,Julie)..But I finally did manage to make a card for atleast 1 of their challenges...And here's my take on it :                                                                  
As you all know,I love making my own flowers and this one is no exception..This flower was made from the Cheery Lynn Stacker #6 flower die and I have colored it using distress stains -barn door and festive berries.I have just started using distress stains and I am so in love with this product...These stains give such a bright and beautiful finish to all the projects and even my punched laces and trellis background are colored using distress stains..Now,I don't need to worry about the right color cardstock...By using the stains,I can get instantly the color that I want for any particular project!...Yayy for that :)
Another product which I am very happy to have received in my mail is the Hero Arts shadow inks....I just love those colors..So soft and beautiful and I have already used it for stamping on the die-cut sentiment from the Inspired by stamping stamps...Love that as well !
