Birthday Wreath for my boss

I made this birthday card for my boss. She is turning 76 this Sunday.  She runs the little cafe where I wait tables sometimes and she has finally decided to retire.  I got this beautiful paper from one of big box stores, not sure which one but the darker flourishes on it are glittered.  I used two plain circles to cut out the shape and then added lots of the leaves from Cheery Lynn's flourish leaf strip.  Then cut out several strips of the pretty medium roses and used pop dots to put them together.  I used a stylus and soft pad to shape the petals.  I added some dried flowers from Michaels and pearls to finish this card.  I hope she likes it.
