Belated Birthday

This card is the result of three challenges. Technique Junkies Try That Technique challenged us to use the Acrylic Emboss technique from the Aug-Sep/2010 newsletter. Tuesday Throwdown's challenge is DIY embellishments and Stampsmith's challenge is birthday.
The background is done using the acrylic emboss technique. The embossing folder is the Regal Flourishes texture trade from Tim Holtz. The stamp is from Stampsmith. Isn't she cool! The sentiment is computer typed. I went "belated" -- my usual style.  The roses are my DIY embellishments. I cut the spiral flower using a Sizzix die and formed them using my quilling tool and tweezers. I added a small pearl for the centers.
