Special Birthday

I have been trying to figure out something special for my Grandmother's 90th Birthday card. This one is pretty, but I don't think it is THE one yet....
I used the Sketch over at Stamping 411. Those that know me are aware that one of my favorite colors is yellow, thus the Summer Sun. I used one of my ALL time favorite SU sets, Natural Beauty, which is long retired, but still goreous! I sponged the Ballet Blue onto the outside of the circle then stamped and watercolored the leaves with Old Olive reinker. The flowers are also colored with reinkers and cut out for a 3D effect. The rest is pretty self explanatory.
I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges, as well:
Pear Tree Designs - Stamped Images
Crafty Ann - Birthdays
Corrosive - Birthdays
Stamp Something - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by tonight! I will be back tomorrow with another card for the Come and Get It Color Challenge!
Rubber Hugs,
