Freestyle Fridays

I have a friend at work that never hesitates to help me out.  Heck, she'll even go to the theatre with me to see a play that no one else in my circle is even interested in.  Next weekend we are going to see Amaluna by Cirque du Soleil that I can't wait to see.  She celebrated her birthday on Wednesday and in honor of that I made her this card.  She's off studying this week so she won't get to see it until Monday.  It will be waiting for her at her desk.

Whenever I have trouble deciding on a color combination I always fall to Old Olive and Rose Red.  The French Script (the girl can speak French too which is a bonus since I sometimes forget I can speak English) was stamped with Rose Red.  Then I added a die cut from Twisted Metal Tags & Accents using Rose Red DSP.  From there I built up a wreath of sorts using a fern and leaf punch.  Now for the flowers.  These did not turn out like the video I watched but for a first effort I still like them.  I built the roses using the Rose Creations spellbinder and fussed with them quite a bit to curl them up.  I used a Glue Gloss around the edges and dipped  them in Platinum Dry Fine Glitter.  In the center I added a flower from Adornments using Crystal Effects. 
For the inside of the card

I stamped a sentiment from a "My Favorite Things" set and added some balloons left over from another card I'll be sharing at a later date.  Hope she likes it :)
********REGINA'S MISSION********
For this week Regina your mission it to create "something" using glitter.  Seems to me it's been awhile since you have.  It can be anything that you fancy just make sure it glitters!  If it should strike that you would like to join in on these missions please don't hesitate to let us know.  We'd love to have you play along.
See Ya Next Week!

Oh gosh Julie I love this card. It is so lovely. I tend to like to use French Script too because it makes such a great background stamp. I know that your friend will love this Birthday card as it is just breathtaking. Have a wonderful weekend dear friend and I look forward to seeing your next creation.
