Floral Birthday

Good afternoon everyone! I hope you are all safe and well.  My heart goes out to anyone who may be suffering this terrible weather, and flooding.  I can't begin to imagine what it must be like to have your precious home flooded and the trauma that goes with it.
I would like to say hello and welcome to my new followers.
Today I have a card for a friend who will be celebrating her birthday.  I wanted to embellish it with some of the beautiful flowers from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop...
I embossed my base card then dusted with Peach Glimmer Chalk. I then added two layers of paper from the Prima 'Rondelle' paper stack. I cut two flourishes from Spellbinders 'Venetian Motifs' then added my flowers, seam binding bow, pearl pins and pearls, all from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.  Sentiment is by Anna Griffin.
The daisies and rosebuds were white, but I dusted over them with peach glimmer chalk to add colour.  I finally added some foliage, punched from white card and coloured with PM's.

I am entering my card into the following challenges...

Thank you for stopping by
Sasha xx
