Blue Birthday

I am having fun making easel cards.  This one is for my sister-in-law's birthday
Blue is her favorite color and I just love this pattern paper with the blues and browns. I bough several sheets of it a few years ago and I was thrilled to find this blue/gray paper in my stash that matches.
I used chunky white and antique white embossing enamel on the card.  I decided to see what it would do if I added some of the embossing enamel to the flowers.  I was afraid the flowers wouldn't hold up to the heat while using the heat gun but they turned out great!
Here is a close up of the flower
