A Happy Birthday Card with full flower background

I have seen at Shona's Blog a lovely challenge from  Winnie and Walter NSD with Pinkfresh Studio Challenges and I like to join this time :)


I look at this lovely mood board and love the picture at the bottom part with so many flowers in so many colors...

I took my old Stampin Up stamp and stamped on a white paper:

Started to colored with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor those flowers:

And I thought this Background not GOOD enough (look so empty) also I took my Bokeh Dots stamp and started to stamped the tiny dots with purple distress ink:

Now I feel more happy with the background I made (looks like a design paper right? it was easy to made :) and I can mimic the color on the mood board) :

I finished my card with Cut Out (HAPPY) I have got from Joyce as goodies for my birthday, dear Joyce many thanks for your lovely Goodies all are adorable die cuts...and I stamped BIRTHDAY using my Hero Arts Alphabet stamp and punched it one by one with SU Puncher.

 Here is the complete card:

Do you think that background to busy? I hope not :)
