Magical birthday

Well what a week. I was at the hospital with my other half on friday who is alot better now and then on Sunday night it was my turn, playing netball and took a bad landing and totally sprained my ankle. I can't walk properly or drive. Enough of that and on with the cards.
I have made this card for 2 challenges. The image is from high-hope-stamps and their challenge this week is dry embossing. I have used my dots folder by cuttlebug. I used my gold ink pad to highlight them to go with the colour theme of the card.
I did say I used this card for 2 challenges, the other challenge is papertake-weekly challenge and this is the sketch that Dawn has created for us to follow this week. I have gone for a plainish card for me but I think it worked out ok in the end and is not to boring. I hope you will agree.
On the inside of the card I used chalks and wet chalks to make a paper to I feel works well with the front image.
Materials used:
High hopes: Henry the great
Playing card emblems from The greeting farm Alice in wonderland set.
Greetings stamps: I have had for years and cannot remember who maks them.
Colouring: Copic pens
Swiss dots cuttlebug folder
thank you so much for dropping by and taking a look.
