Birthday card for my friend.

Hi all,
Just one of two quick posts tonight.  This is a card I have made for a friend at work.  She is one of those people who is always starting a diet but never quite makes it past lunchtime!!!  I love her to pieces.  Happy Birthday Carol!

The image I have used is from Mo's Digital Pencil - as soon as I saw it I knew it would fit for Carol!!  I have coloured it in using a technique I have acquired after seeing a tutorial on Janet's blog over at Pink Gems - thanks Janet, I will be using this technique alot.  She used Distress Inks and a water brush and I hope you will agree it is very effective!  Pop on over to Pink Gem and have a look - very clever.

The red DP is from a Hot off the Press Cardmaker's Creative Pad - Classic and the flock effect paper is from Laura Ashley.  The flower I have made myself using my two flower punches using holographic paper and red card.  The buttons are from my stash.  The tag is one I made myself and the sentiment printed on it is a birthday sentiment from Paula at Pollycraft.  The ribbon is again from my craft stash.
So the challenges this fits are as follows:
CRAFT Challenge - 1 tag, 1 sentiment and 1 ribbon
My time to Craft - Tags so much
Paperplay Challenge- 2 patterned papers, 1 ribbon and 3 buttons
Sketch and Stash - Sketch number 23 and my stash is my distress inks, neglected but with new found love and life.
