more Sparkling Birthday Wishes

NO, you are not going crazy!!!
... you saw an almost identical card to this card HERE.  
When I cut the gazillion leaves in gold glitter paper and black cardstock to make it, I used the gold "outer" and inlaid the black "inner".  It seemed a shame to have all the black "outers" and gold "inners" go to waste, especially as one of my crafty goals is to make multiple cards whenever possible.  Once again, I struggled to lay them out in a random design.  I reversed the matted layers too.

Here is a close-up of the leafy panel before the vellum sentiment panel was adhered in place.

I am going to enter my card in the following challenges:

There are lots of fabulous projects shared each day this week and we have been challenged to create a new project inspired in some way by them.
I was inspired by:
- the leafy background & vellum layer of Shay's card from Day 1
- the leafy background of Lydia's card from Day 3
... the Winnie & Walter Cover Model - The Leaf Effect Cutaway
is on my wishlist, I'm sure you can see why :)
- the vellum panel with overlaying diecut sentiment of Gayatri's card from Day 4
