Birthday Card for Mother-in-Law

My mother-in-law's birthday is this month and her is the card I made for her. I used Stickles on the flower...I gotta tell you...I loved the ease of using it but I didn't like how long it took to dry and I didn't like how it pulled up the color, turning it a funny looking pink around the edges....Think I'll probably stick with using the 2-way glue pen and glitter.
Stamps: Fabulous Flowers, Weathered, Sincere Salutations
Ink: Yoyo Yellow, Pink Passion
Paper: Pixie Pink, Barely Banana, Whisper White
Accessories: Paper Snips, Stickles (bought from local craft store), 1/8" circle punch, Fire Rhinestone Brads, Stampin' Dimensionals
