Lil Lynda's Piano Forte

I created this birthday card using this adorable digital stamp from Elisabeth Bell called Lil' Lynda's Piano Forte.  I started with a kraft card base.  I added a piece of light aqua cut just a little smaller than the base.  I cut a strip of dot patterned paper backed in kraft card stock. I punched down one side of the kraft card stock using an eyelet lace border punch.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma color pencils.  I backed the image and sentiment in dark aqua pearlescent card stock and then again in kraft card stock.  I added 3 white mini flowers down the side and added an aqua rhinestone to each flower.  I also added a larger flower that I created by layering an aqua daisy on top of a lighter and slightly larger aqua daisy.  To the center of that I added a small white flower with an aqua rhinestone in the center.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
