Another Square Card with Alcohol Inks!

Did you play with a sketch lately? Hero Arts' August Challenge has these three awesome sketches 
to offer! I can't stop playing with alcohol inks once I get started....So I decided to make a square card from the sketch (see top right).
 HAPPY BIRTHDAY
Edited: I re-did the sun flower. The original flower was stamped in brown, but I find it too dark and decide to stamp it in Rusty Hinge (distress ink). The card photo was taken outside on my deck!
Happy Sunday! 

PS: Thank you for the wonderful comments about my last alcohol-inked card (see here), when I think I am confident/good enough at it, I will do a tutorial. How's that?

Virginia, I just saw your sunflower done with the alcohol inks. I think you did a wonderful job. the colors are so vivid and the bling is the perfect finishing touch. i would love to see a video tutorial if you do one. Michele would bee a great helper. !!!

it's me again -- I meant to say the pearls are a perfect touch ! It's getting late here (Houston,Tx ) so guess my brain was getting sleepy. Haha !
Hope you have a lovely weekend.

Such a pretty photo- the background really enhances the card. Love all these posts with alcohol inks-you've shown how you don't have to be artsy to use them. And I think the sunflower colour isn't dark- it just looks natural x
