Happy birthday - With just a pop of orange

Hello guys
I dunt know why but i am just hooked on to handmade card.....everyday I wake up with something new buzzing in my head and I can't rest until its done. July for me marks the beginning of Birthday season for me and I have a lot of Birthdays lined up....so I decided to stock up on my cards so that I have enough to send to everyone I know.
I am putting this card up at the following challenges:
  1. Paru's Card making Challenges - July - Happy Birthday
  2. Scrapping4fun Challenge #94- Birthday
  3. The Flower Challenge#10 - Embossing Dry/Heat
  4. HLS July CAS card - Birthday
  5. Addicted to CAS challenge #115 - Summer - My card has summer bright colors
  6. Addicted to stamps and more challenge #251 - Anything Goes
  7. Double D challenge - A pop of color with Black and White - I have my inspiration from the moodboard.

Its a fairly simple card and took me 1 hour to make it considering that I colored the flower with watercolor pencils. Though, I did use water to blend them initially and so I started with a watercolor cardstock. But then, I was very unhappy with the blending and went back again with the pencils and did some shading on the flower..
 So, I heat embossed the flower and colored it with my pencils. I then fussy cut it out and kept it aside ready to mount on the panel. For the front panel, I stamped the leaf from the same stamp set several times using dye ink. I added a little black thread and on top adhered my flower. I glued this panel to a black cardstock making sure it was peeking out from 2 sides only. I added this to my chrome yellow standard A2 size cardbase. I finished my card with the sentiment stamped on vellum and added it to the front of the flower and sprinkled some clear sequins. I hope you liked my simple card with a pop of orange.
