My daughter's birthday card

Hi all!  This is my card for my daughter Holly's 23rd birthday which was at the weekend.   I used this gorgeous Crafts and Me digi image and framed her using the scrolled edging of a beautiful piece of 12x12 paper that has been in my stash for years.  I think it suits the curls in her hair rather well!   
 
Holly was a music student at the Brit school and has the most fabulous voice  and loves her music, hence the theme.  The image also reminded me of her with her blonde curly hair!!  Papers are Stampin Up, and the wooden Music and notes were from The Craft Barn.  I painted them with Acrylic and used Viva Decor metallic paints to gild the edges of my card and the wooden embellies!
The flowers are cut from Crinoline fabric, with the Tattered Florals die from Tim Holtz.  I've then spritzed them with Lavender field Glimmer Mist to give this gorgeous purply blue.
And a pic of my gorgeous girl herself!!

Thanks for stopping by, that's all for now!!
