Happiest Birthday Wishes

Hello, if you are popping by today, hope you have found something to interest you. Another day with rain and cold breezes. We had an early morning visitor today. My daughter's boyfriend came over and dropped one of her dogs here as the other dog had some surgery today. She had a lump in her throat and also an infection which meant she had to have I think just 1 tooth removed. We now have the Westie staying with us so Moni can rest up after the operation. She has to wear one of those plastic collars so that wouldn't have gone down well with the Westie probably trying to pull it off. So he will be staying with us for a few days.
I took my granddaughter to craft with me, we were very late due to the dog coming, LOL, George parked in the drive and stayed for a coffee.
On the way home from craft we dropped in to a local shopping centre and went looking for a gift for one of my friend's daughters who has just turned 21. I started her card tonight so have to finish it tomorrow morning as we are going out for a meal with them tomorrow night.
Our youngest son dropped in tonight and brought some fish for tea. I had bought some earlier so we had the same. Our granddaughter is staying again tonight as my DIL rang to say she was not well and hubby offered for Layla to stay 1 more night. I had to share my piece of fish with her as I bought it before I knew she was staying. She loves fish and always eats it all up with no prompting.
Finally got Adrian in to see the doctor. The large fluid sac on his elbow has gone down slightly and he said to just let the body heal itself as if he drained it, it probably would come back again. He has given him another certificate as he still isn't fit for work. Will have another couple of weeks to heal those ribs and then see how much he can move around.
It's so cold tonight, I actually got our wood fire going. Ridiculous when it is still summer here!!
Anyway, I had better get on and share this card,
I've used a white cardbase and then layered some burgundy card and an embossed piece of pink card (swiss dots folder) I cut a long rectangular piece of burgundy card and tied a ribbon & bow around it. The sentiment was stamped in SU Cherry Cobbler and is from SU clear mount set Happiest Birthday Wishes. I used a circle punch and a scallop punch. I ink distressed the scallop and then added 3 little punched green flowers which I shaped and added some pink bling to the centres. I also added 3 light green pieces of bling to the lower RH corner. On the inside I have used a layer of burgundy card and also a piece of the pink. I used a corner punch on the pink piece. The sentiment is a Penny Black stamp called 365 days and was inked with SU Cherry Cobbler.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
