Floral Birthday

I decided to step away from the "cutsie" birthday cards that I always make and made this more "grown up" birthday card.  The base of my card is a floral patterned paper from My Mind's Eye.  I added a strip of waterspout cardstock to the bottom. I added a garnet red ribbon and bow to the top of the piece of waterspout. I stamped the sentiment below the bow using a birthday sentiment stamp from Inkadinkado.  I added four garnet red pearls below the sentiment.  I stamped the flower image, from Inkadinkado, onto white cardstock and cut out in an oval.  I backed it in garnet red card stock and cut around it using scalloped scissors. I added the image right above the bow.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Beautiful card. Perfect design. I want to try to design like this for the Plastic cards, if you don't mind. I appreciate this.
