Happy Birthday

Hi guys, just popping on a card I've made for a friend who's Birthday is was this week, 
it's a bit different for me lol,
The gorgeous stamp is from Anna Marie and I saw her do a card using  similar things and just had to have a go, lol
the stamp is heat embossed onto her range of vellum papers then I stamped a text stamp from my own stash for the background to give added interest, the vellum is then roughly torn to give yet more interest, this is a bit tricky, well I found it tricky anyway lol,
the main image is coloured using a white gel pen and a paint pen, to add a little something different I used  fran-tage shabby white embossing powder randomly around the image too,

the gorgeous paper I used behind the image is from MCH and is from a Prima paper pad called Divine,
the paper rose is from The Ribbon Girl as are the rose buds, the dried flowers are from Anna Marie designs, the ribbon is from my stash.....
To finish the card off I used the same embossing powder on the sentiment and added a few pearls from MCH coloured with my copic black marker to tie in the black,

Just letting you know I'm feeling a lot better, it's still sore but getting there and I feel more myself lol,

Hope your all ok, I'm trying to get round to thank you cards for all of you who sent me such beautiful ones and gifts, they will be with you as soon as lol,
all for now!
