Special Birthday Wishes

Hello lovely peeps, and a very warm welcome to my 2 new followers :o)

I made this card for one of my crafting friends for her 75th birthday, using a stamp by Dawn Bibby.

First I stamped onto Sheena's stamping card with Black Archival ink and then covered up the roses on the dress with Pebeo drawing gum

 I added water to some Crimson Brusho on my craft mat and used it to watercolour the dress.

At the bottom I used the wet-on-wet technique to give a soft shadow

I cut down some pink papers from two different pads to fit a 7"x7" card and distressed the edges with my scissors.

then layered them up with a Memory Box die-cut and some dark pink wired ribbon (this was attached with Collall 3D glue gel - I put a weight on while it dried)

The sentiment is from the Sketchy Wishes set by Lili of the Valley

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
