Hello!!! I really like how this birthday card came out!!! The flower (Tim Holtz) uses the Brushless Watercolor Technique on Ranger's Watercolor Paper from Week 1 of the Summer of Creative Chemistry over at Online Card Classes. The background (Tim Holtz) uses the Perfect Distress Technique (Distress Inks cracked pistachio, mowed lawn, wild honey - Perfect Pearls perfect gold) on Manila Cardstock from Week 3. The right edge has been torn and embossed with gold powder. The other 3 edges are distressed and there a piece of lace along the left edge. The folded card is a deep brown, not black. The flower panel is die cut using Stitched Ovals die (Elizabeth Craft Designs) but I used an oval too large for my paper and just cut around the top and the bottom corners. I didn't get the bottom corners exactly lined up with each other but hopefully the twine somewhat masks that :-) There is Distress Ink Walnut Stain sponged around the edges. Happy Birthday (Quietfire Design) is stamped on Manila Card with Archival Ink Potting Soil, cut out and edges inked with Distress Ink Mowed Lawn.
