Heidi's Birthday - Simon Says

A special card for a special lady. I've only had dealings with Heidi from Simon Says once, but can assure you it was a real pleasure.  She is one wonderfully generous lady who supports so many challenges with her fabulous prizes and making this card as a tribute to her birthday was a real pleasure.

We have a fabulous sketch by Iris this week and I used Stempelglede's fabulous Maribel for this card along with stamps from their grunge collection. Maribel is slightly tinted with distress re-inkers and I also used these for the grunge stamped edges.
The small flowers are cute with EK Success medium retro punch, stamped in the middle with a flower from the grunge collection and the leaf swirls with a die by Sizzix. The larger rose is from Hobbycraft and the small ones and the pearl stems from Wild Orchid Crafts. The sentiment is Inkadinkado and the rest is from stash.
