forever friends birthday

Hi had a great day today as my card Beautiful Day was a winner on 2 blogs -  http://craftyourpassionchallenges.blogspot.co.uk/- and a top pick on http://twistedtuesdaychallenges.blogspot.co.uk/ .
 I'm back with a birthday card which I made with a Forever Friends wooden stamp - its such a cute image.
I coloured the image with my copics pens. My collection is growing - I now have 16 and am finding it very hard to drive past Grimsby crafts without nipping in for a few more colours! I used a spellbinders die to cut the shape and stamped the image on. I then inked the edge with a VersaMagic chalk ink.
I made a card blank and used a scalloped blade along the right edge of the card. I added a brown leaf print backing paper. Next I embossed a piece of white card with a cuttlebug folder - butterflies and used the VersaMagic chalk ink again to bring out the butterflies and along the scalloped edge of the card. I punched the flowers with a dovecraft punch and added contrasting gems in each flower centre. I then embossed the butterfly and to finish the card I added a Happy Birthday sentiment.
I used a contrasting paper inside and added some scalloped ribbon which goes well with the scallpoped edge of the card.
I am entering this card in the following challenges -
