CTS #197 - Happy Birthday, MICHELE!

I'm really hoping there's a party going on, and I wanted to throw my card in the basket for Michele!  She's as sweet as can be, and a really good card-maker, as you can see!  Hopefully she has it in hand, but if not it'll be there soon! Here's to you, sweet Michele! Hope your day is spectacular!   Ok, onto the reason we're here...

It all started with a watercolor panel, die cut with the flowers then layered onto a panel cut at an angle and ink blending done.  A sentiment was then embossed with a sparkly ep.  And a close-up so you can see the sparkle... I only wish the picture was better but alas it is cloudy here.

This will be enrolled into Case This Sketch #197, ending today!  Whew, I made it!  I really enjoyed the DT's cards but Michele's really spoke to me, so only fitting this one to her goes there too.
