Elegant Birthday Wishes

Playing the the cave today!  I made this bday card with some different white card stocks, glossy and plain smooth, and Nuvo mousse in silver, some pearls from my stash.  The stencil I used with the mousse is from Tim Holtz called Layered Floral and the sentiment is from Altenew Birthday Greetings, heat embossed in white on black card stock.

I will be entering this in:
