Happy Birthday to a Friend

I found a card online that I really loved.  The card was beautiful, and the layout was just what I needed to help me with this birthday card.  The original card is at CW Card Creations, and I'm pretty sure that I did a fair job of copying Cec's card.

I am entering it into Sugar Creek Hollow's Tic-Tac-Toe challenge.  My card actually has a double tic-tac-toe.  I have a vertical one on the left side - bling (pearls in the upper right corner and shimmer mist on the flower), embossing (Cricut Seeing Spots) and flowers (made with Cheery Lynn Designs' Build a Flower 1 die).  I also have a horizontal one in the middle row - embossing, ribbon (hand-died with Tim Holtz's distress inks) and distressing (on the edges, on the embossing and on the picture). 

I am also entering it into Cheery Lynn Designs' challenge Bling It Up. Although there isn't a lot of bling, those shiny flower petals and the pearls do a pretty good job in the bling department. See the shine?
