Happy Birthday Card

I do so love the colours of autumn and like to use these in cards for Halloween but also for birthdays.  Again I have used Crafty Ann's scrap of orange mottled stone backing paper I had left over from my son's card and I also printed off some of the orange/black paper (well I was good and printed off 4 small pieces on one A4 page).  I have used the Sweet Pea stamps image that I won in a challenge recently and coloured it in with Promarkers/Sakura pens.  I have distressed the edges with Tim Holtz's Spiced Marmalade and Black Soot distress ink pads and also distressed the papers as well.  Next came some folding/scrunching/distressing of some paper flower shapes I cut out with the Cricut.  The flowers are held together with some brads which I have had for years and years and never used.  The card is finished off with some ribbon, gems and a Crafty Ann's ticket sentiment.
