DCWV May Sketch Birthday Layout

What a beautiful day and I started the day with a brisk walk of the dog and I have gotten so much accomplished!  I just loved how this layout turned out.  I used the May DCWV sketch and their Taj Mahal paper stack.  I also used a Sizzix folder to emboss some beautiful metallic gold paper!  I was so happy with it!  I cut out the center to make it a frame and embossed a small strip with a different folder for the bottom portion.  Of course, I have added:
Queen & Co felt strip
Queen & Co bling
Resin Flower brads
Fabric flowers
Metallic fibers
Recollections bling
Darice bling
Creative Memories gold stickers & title sticker
Rub on quote
And here is the sketch:
