Finally A Card!

I've been so busy, I've not had a chance to do much in the crafty line lately!
I finally got round to making a card, for my nieces birthday, which I had to post off today!
I apologise for the quality of the pics as I broke the screen on my camera phone 
while I was on holiday and I'm using my old one which is not soo good!
The weather here is really dull too, so that didn't help either!
Anyhoo on to the card!

The image I usesd was a freebie from Cuddly Buddly as far as I can remember!
I coloured it using Promarkers and cut it out with my Nesties, Label 5.
I then matted it onto some cardstock from my stash, which I had cut with my 
Nesties and embossed with Swiss Dots

I used a computer generated sentiment, which I rounded off with a corner punch
 & matted on to the same cardstock as the image.
The backing papers are from a bumper pack that I bought ages ago,
 I think they were from Do Crafts

I added some organza ribbon and a few tea roses which came from Hobby craft.
 I thought thet went well with the colours!

To finish off I added some punched out flourishes. 
Thanks for looking, I hope you like it!
