To celebrate a birthday

The layout is here:

I used pink, brown and a ribbon for:

A birthday card with bling (no way can I use it up on ONE card LOL!!):

One of my favorite stamps is this one called Watercolor Daisy by Hampton Art Stamps. The sentiment is $ stamp. I used misc. pink, brown and white cs. The flowers are by Petaloo, with chocolate half pearls added. The sheer pink ribbon is Ribbon Boutique, and I used Nesties oval dies. I often cut a bit so I can use a smaller size, and here I did that to the stem. Watercoloring with an aqua brush, using Twinkling H2O Playful Peony and Olive Vine. I seldom color on colored cs, but this did seem to work.

This is a card I have already added to my gallery at SCS, for a Verve and a Party Time challenge. I did not add the other challenges, and will do so here, as I continue to have problems with my computer and Splitcoast - today they are having a bad day LOL!

I used a JustRite birthday greeting for:

and I did the top row across as well as the middle row down (Bingo) - using dry embossing, die cuts, flowers, and die cuts, ribbon (twine) and bling for:

JustRite stamp, Spellbinders circle die, flower die (I forget the company that made this set), Memory Box Lavalier circle, K&Company dp, misc. white and chocolate cs, chocolate ink, chocolate half pearls.
I used a wet aqua brush to pull out a bit of the ink for a soft sponged look on the swirls as well as around the sentiment. Any ideas you have for using this JustRite set will be much appreciated. I am not fond of scissors, so cutting around the swirls is pretty low on my list of methods!
