Rainin" Daisies and a picture of me on my birthday!

Hello everyone, a continuation of birthday celebrations today as I went out with my Mum for lunch. I bought a few books as birthday pressies for a couple of the grandchildren and found a coat and several pairs of shoes in the op shop - one pair are exactly what I was after to complete my flapper outfit. I actually found them at the RSPCA op shop at the top of our street. A quiet night at home, cooked some chicken drumsticks for tea, a sort of casserole, but done on the top of the stove, not in the oven.
Both my son and hubby have to work tomorrow so are both asleep although our son only come home about 20 mins ago so he could still be on his phone or facebook.
The card I am sharing today was made with a new stamp, a birthday gift from my friend, Jane.
Here is what I used.
The base card is SU Pacific Point. I tore a piece of DP (from my scrap stash) and mounted onto a piece of SU Real Red and then tore that as well. I cut a large scalloped circel with my nesties in Real Red and then I used another scrap to cut a plain circle out as well. The image is from Penny Black called "Rainin' Daisies" and I couloured in with Copic Markers and used some Jelly Roll pens on the flowers to give a bit of sparkle. It probably won't show up in the scan. I thought is still needed something and I tried a few circles and ovals with a sentiment in and they just didn't look right, so I ended up using an alphabet die to cut a few letters in scraps of the red to make "For You". I haven't decorated the inside yet.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Get Hippity with Ippity - GHWI #19 - Rain and/or showers is the theme. My rain is the flowers!
Make It Monday Linky Party - #85 ~ anything goes
Gotta go and get some sleep so see you tomorrow,
Take Care,

This is me and our youngest grandchild who is about 11 months old. Cute isn't he, (I'm definitely biased, LOL) There were about 4 people all trying to make him look at the camera to have his photo taken, if you look at my eyes, you can see I was looking at them all doing their silly faces and actions. A real hoot!!! The flowers are the box my youngest daughter bought me. The orchids are lovely, unusual colours. I think they may have dyed them possibly.
