Birthday Rose for a Beautiful Daughter-in-Law

My youngest son's wife has an August birthday, and she became a special addition to our family ten years ago last month.  I wanted to make and send a special birthday card that jumped right out and said, "That's for Ginger!"  As I made this particular card that I chose several months ago at a Liz Thayer card gathering, I loved it right off, and I thought it would be perfect for Ginger because she loves flowers and gardening.  

I finished the stamping, heat embossing, and watercolor painting on the card front at the card event, I decided not to completely finish everything that day, because I knew I wanted to make a few additions and some small changes.  Take a peak at my finished version of the card front, which included adding some iridescent sparkly glitter to the rose petals, as well as my inside design creation below:
