Happy Birthday- Cardabilities #130

Hello all! I am here today with a card I made this week for my niece's 18th birthday.  I was inspired by the current sketch at Cardabilities: 

I was also inspired by Tim Holtz's tag for September. He used some alcohol inks and swirled them on Glossy Cardstock. I had to try the technique. I used blue, green, and purple inks, along with the silver mixative. I feel like the purple and green got a little muddy, so I may stick to two colors next time, but it turned out pretty cool anyway. The rest of the card came together pretty easily. I tore the piece of patterned paper and used purple chalk on the torn edge. I punched the border from another piece of patterned paper. I stamped and heat embossed the flower and sentiment and then cut them out.
