Last Minute Birthday Card

Did I mention I was at a scrapbooking retreat last weekend?!?  Well, it turned out to be one woman's birthday and so I wanted to make a card at the last minute with the stuff I had with me. I made a background using Lindy's Stamp Gang gold stain and repeatedly stamping it with a Hampton border text stamp. Then I stamped the flowers (Impression Obsession) in red ink.  I made a black card base for it and added a Clearly Besotted sentiment.
