A Birthday Bloom

Made flower using GS cart and a patterned paper by Prima and topped off with a little dab of glossy accents..did some tearing and some distressing and followed a sketch by 365 Cards and incorporated a few other elements off the following challenges:
Sophisticat - distressing
Practical Scrappers - glitter and bling
Crafty Angels - my favorite things (glossy accents)
Crafty Ann's - let the sunshine in
Pals Paper Arts - flowers
Totally Gorjuss - texture
