Mom's Birthday

My mom will be 93 next week.  Still lives alone in her big ole house.  She has had medical problems ever since I can recall - polio, extreme whiplash which resulted in a body case, broken knee cap, broken toes, broken arm, broken hip, several surgeries, macular degeneration casing blindness in one eye.  And yet she keeps on truckin.  Her biggest complaint is "I just don't have any energy!  Do you think it is because I am getting older?"
She likes fancy and since that is not my style, I struggle with cards for her.  Even though this card isn't over the top fancy and glitzy, I think she will like it.

I cased this beautiful card that I saw on Pinterest.  Love the browns and touch of pink but wanted a brighter card and went with yellows and greens.

The embossing is a Cuttlebug Folder.  I didn't have enough pearls so I used some drops that I had made by melting Perler Beads and then used some liquid pearl of the same color.
The vine is Cherry Lynn.  I added touches of Copic to the Prima flower.  Sentiment is GKD.
