One card- seven trends

Usually, in my non crafty life, I am not a trendy person, but then, when I craft, the sky is a limit and I can try some trends I would never try out of crafting.
This Happy Birthday card I made for IBS blog post is this mix trends card with quite a nice final result. I stamped Happy Birthday title from Happy Sentiments set http://www.inspiredbystamping.com/collections/frontpage/products/happy-sentiments
 with fluorescent embossing powder (trend #1 is Fluorescent) using black cardstock as my base :trend #2 is black backgrounds

Then I stamped a lot of flowers and leaves using IBS Little Flowers set  http://www.inspiredbystamping.com/collections/frontpage/products/littleflowers

 heat embossed with the same green fluorescent powder and 2 shades of fluorescent pinks (trend #1 again, but different color). I made two flower cluster over the card (trend #3 is clusters) and added Owl sticker in the middle (trend #4, the pretty old and never ending, are owls). As the final touch I added some paint splashes with bright paints (trend #5 is adding splashes/paints/mists even if you don't need them) and some crystals (trend #6 is blings all over, the more the better). As I said, I do like my card, but let's be clear: you can make your own art and not to follow all trends. But then, if you don't, most probably you wouldn't get 
much "Likes" when you post it on your FB page/Instagram/Pinterest (lucky #7 trend that we all use)
