Spring Birthday

Here's another birthday card for a friend (her birthday is around Easter) I made today...
  

As I didn't have any flower pin I made it myself. I just used a pin and glued it to a flower brad with the hot-melt gun, after removing the brads behind the flower... I think it looks nice...

Stamp: "Tilda and her bunny" & "tulip walkway" from  Magnolia Butterfly Dreams Collection (2011), Stitched Flowers from Betty's Creations
Sentiment: my own handwriting
Ink pad in black, light &dark blue
Colours: Polychromos from Faber Castell, Joy Crafts Decorative Chalks
Sketch: Sunday Sketch & Stamp
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities, Joy Crafts, Creatables
Paper: flower one (in the circles) from Marianne Design
Gems, shiny ribbon, plain papers and cardstock from my stash.
