Wishing for more vacation time...

Hi everyone! I've been gone for a bit, off on vacation in warm, tropical Mexico & I have to say I've missed being crafty, but I am really missing the warm air & sparkling pool at the resort right now! It's always so hard to jump back into "normal" after a wonderful break away. I am HATING my washing machine right now.. seems like I just can't get away from it! Tee Hee! Here is the fabulous view I just can't shake
Ok, so enough whining & on to business :-)
It is my Boss's birthday today & here is a little sumthin sumthin I put together for her.
The dp is all from a huge stack (don't remember which one or who it is by-I think My Mind's Eye) the ink is CTMH, the chalk ink I used behind the flowers & also around the edge is Studio G. I used the branches4flowers from The {Stamps} of Life & the sentiment is from birthday4cookie.
Here is a close up of the flowers. I distressed the edges of the fussy cut ones to give them more dimension. The pearls are recollections.

I am entering on the following:
