Birthday card!

I made this birthday card for someone really special, but I can't say who, just in case she sees this post before her birthday. I think it is probably one of my favorite cards I've made so far!
This is the first gatefold card I have made! It measures 6 by 6 finished. I used my accent essentials cart to cut out the layers under the sentiment at 3in. I used some flowers I got from Michaels and jewels to embellish the card, and used stickers from paper studio for the sentiment. I used my divine swirl cuttlebug to do the embossing on the light purple layer beneath the sentiment.

I am entering this card in these challenges:
