Happy Birthday + Yesterday's Christmas Card Extravaganza

Below is a birthday card I made for a dear friend, 
which I would like to enter in the following challenges:
Bloggers Challenge - Backgrounds
Daring Cardmakers Challenge - Signature Style  (First, I like to use every possible scrap of paper.  On the bottom left corner of this card I wove leftover 1/4" strips of paper to make part of my background.  I also love to use embossing on my cards.  Here I used 3 different embossing folders on the same card.  And I enjoy making my own crocheted flowers for my cards.)
Just Add Ink Challenge #182 - Just Add Frames

Loves Rubber Stamps Challenge #69 - Have a sentiment on the front
Paper Crafting Journey Challenge - Flowers
Dare to Be Sassy Thursday Challenge #194 - Shabby Chic
Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge #144 - Anything Goes
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Emboss It

I spent a lovely day yesterday with my stamping friends at Joyce's Annual Christmas Card Extravaganza.  We made 10 different Christmas cards using CTMH products; there was a yard sale table with part of the proceeds going to Operation Smile; the raffle items were fantastic; and we enjoyed a yummy lunch, which included taco soup, and high calorie desserts.  Here is a quick look at the cards we made:
