Happy Birthday

Here is a birthday card I have made using a Sweet Pea Stamps image called "Amy Boo" by Heather Valentin.  I have coloured my image in with Promarkers.  I recently saw a show on Create and Craft with Rossella Cottrell.  It was a pergamano show and she mentioned sticky glue and a mapping pen to add glitter to your projects.  I know lots of people swear by Quickie Glue pens but I have tried no end over the years and just can't get to last and keep on working so I thought I'd give the sticky glue and mapping pen a go and am really pleased with the result.  It now means I can use up the glitter I have in my craft stash.

The backing papers are from my stash.  I have mounted the image on a Marianne's Designs die-cut which I have cut out of kraft card, threaded twine through it and inked the embossing with a brown chalk ink pad.

I have finished the card off with a die-cut sentiment, cherry blossom flowers, gems, organza ribbon bow and a button.
