Crafting from the heart DT call

Well i am throwing my crafting skills into the DT hat and entering the below card into the 4th Challenge at Crafting from the heart , the challenge requires buttons/pearls - i only have 4 pearls on this card so fingers crossed i am not given the boot for lack of pearlyness!  This was my first card that i made since the rush of christams cards had taken over and clouded my craft mojo (really have issues with christmas cards - they give me a craft block!!).  It was a work collegue's birthday and although i am very good friends with her i really didnt know what theme to go with for her birthday card.  I love colouring images and couldn't resist printing Rosie - the image that Miran was offering as a free image.  Isnt she just lovely!!!

I used promarkers to colour the image and used coloured and clear embossing powders and a sprinkle of frantage.  I also used some of my purple distress ink (christmas present) around the image and the sentiment.  I just love my distress inks at the moment! Some die cuts, pins (from ebay) and some pre-made flowers.

Thanks for looking!!!

I am entering this card into the challenge at:
