CAS(E) this Sketch 181...Happy Birthday in Gold

I've made a card for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch!  Here's my card and the sketch...

I used a bunch of the stamps from the Simon Says Stamp Wild Beauty stamp set to make an inset panel of gold bordered flowers for the sketch.  I put all the stamps on one large acrylic block and stamped them all together with versamark on vellum.   I then embossed them with gold and colored the back side of the flowers with markers.  Here's a little tip...I wasn't really happy with the exact positioning of the sentiment, so I opted to put a small gold dot on each side of the sentiment to give it the "appearance" of being farther over...saved having to redo!  THEN, I used that same gold pen...hey, I was on a roll...I dotted around the flowers and leaves...it made it look a little cooler and fuller:)!!  Here's a close up...
Such fun...thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

    1. Hi Janice! I adhered the ends of the flower section to the actual card with adhesive. Then I popped the two stitched white panels over the flowers, using pop up dots. Hope that makes sense:)!
