Take time to smell the flowers

The weekend has gone again and we have started a new month as well. Our son and DIL got home tonight from their honeymoon, but haven't seen them at all as they came home from the airport and more or less straight out for a concert that they already had tickets for!! Katie's Mum brought us over some photos today and also a data stick with a lot of photos on as well so we can choose what to print for ourselves.
We went to church this morning and I was pottering around the house before we left, having breakfast, doing the dishes and then having a shower. My hubby got himself ready and disappeared. I found him sitting in the car about an hour too early to leave. He had forgotten about the daylight saving finished and didn't realise the two clocks were at the old time. My tooth is getting a bit better each day but there is still an ache there.
My oldest daughter came over for a while to talk about wedding invitations and we found some diamante things on e-bay to use on her cards and as they were buy now, snapped them up. I hope they are blingy enough as you really can't tell from the photo. Now we need lace, quite a bit so will be on the lookout for some wide scalloped lace as well as some royal blue satin ribbon.
Onto my card!!!
I've used Su Wisteria Wonder for the basecard, then a layer of SU Soft Suede. I've used 2 different dotty DPs from My Mind's Eye, layering the strip with a backing of the Wisteria Wonder. I cut a nestie shape from a scrap of Soft Suede and printed this cute digi from Digi Darla onto white card and used another shaped die to cut it out. I coloured with Copic Markers and added a vertical "Happy Birthday" in black ink. The inside has a layer of the Soft Suede and a piece of the tan coloured dotty DP and a white scalloped oval die cut.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
