You are no longer "dirty something"... Happy Birthday

This was the sketch for day 323 on 365 cards, and I LOVE it! it gave my the opportunity to make this great folding again.
I made the flowers out of used drier sheets (did I hear recycle or what?), that I cut in circles and inked with 'green tea leaves' ink and 'big sky blue' ink, and put them one on top of the other, and than adhered the cream flowers.
edit: here is a tutorial how to make those flowers
I added silver stickers inside & outside and silver stickles to the flowers. The sentiment is a stamp I got as a rak and I colored it with a white pen, and the "40" no. is a rub-on, also colored with a white pen.
and don't get me wrong because of the flowers - this card was made for a man...
and it goes for the following challenges:
super sketchy sunday - day 323 at 365 cards.
shaped cards - #21 la-la land
fancy edges or corners - #63 one stop craft;
L is for layering - abc (the fnacy fold; the flowers)
3 different textures - #50 crafty creations (organza ribbon, stickles, drier sheets flower, the cream flower, stickers)
glitter - #82 creative belli;
2 different types of bling - humble pie (glitter on the flowers, shiny silver stickers, organza ribbon).
inspiration - #71 etsyinspired - I was inspired by the Dahlia soap
no stamped images - creataliciouschallenges
recycle - #31 die cuts dreams (the drier sheets turned into lovely flowers...); #5 inspire me
