Incredible birthday

My card for today uses stamps and dies from Concord & 9th and is inspired by the new Hugs card die.
I don't have that die,but I like the gate fold style and the sentiment across the front.

Here it is closed so you can see the front.
I started by making my background using distress inks.
I flicked water onto the ink then lifted the colour with a paper towel.
I then stamped the flowers from the flourish stamp set in black archival ink.

Once the ink was dry i went over the black with a black wink of stella pen.

For the inside I stamped birthday using both the upper case and lower case sophisticated script stamps.
Then I added some of the flourish stamps is light colours.

To finish i i added some sequins.
