Monochromatic Flocked Birthday Card

I was trying to keep this card monochromatic, but I'm just not sure the greeting is visible enough. What do you think; leave me a comment & be honest, please! I liked the Perfect Pearls, but alone it just didn't show up, so I mixed it with clear embossing powder & heated that mixture, something I'd never tried before; at least I didn't cause a fire!!! ;-) I just love this flocked paper purchased at Costco many months ago -- it's one of those you just have to touch when you see it!!!
Paper: Memory Stor @ Costco
Stamp: Stampendous Clear Acrylic
Embellishments: Making Memories Fresh Anthology Ribbon; Clear Embossing Powder/Perfect Pearls
Tools: Spellbinders Wizard & Oval Nesties

The card is beautiful Marge!
The greeting is hard to see in your photo but much better when you enlarge the card.I am sure it looks wonderful in real life!!
