Pink birthday card - Annabelle's sketch

I've had the sketch from Annabelle stamps ABSC046 staring me in the face for a few days - finally got around to putting it to good use!  This is a birthday card for my lovely mum - her birthday is next week - and she loves pink cards - will have to get her some pink roses to go with it, I think :)

 This cardstock is slightly textured, so when I stamped and white embossed the Hero Arts background, it came out blotchy - but that's OK, I was going for that look!  - because I then went in with my coloured pencils and added tiny bits of green and pink to the leaves and flowers for a little more interest.  :D
 Also loving my new Copics - I can colour gemstones or pearls any colour I want! Yay!
Hope your day is going swimmingly :)
