HAPPY BIRTHDAY card (with some hand-stitching)

Hello everyone! It's been awhile since I last posted here. Life was a bit busy but then this afternoon I was able to make a card. :)

The image is a RAK from the sweet & kind Janette. Thanks Janette! I finally used this gorgeous image from you. I actually coloured this more than a month ago, did some sky area on this then set it aside as I was still trying to figure out what sort of paper/s or cs I will use with this. And when I pulled it out today somewhere in my stash (along with other stamped images), I found out that the sky area that I made was ink-stained. Just so not to waste this cute image, I decided to cut it to get rid of the stain but ended up losing the sky area. :(

Anyways, I believe this turned out well somehow.

What do you think? Originally, the edges were faux-stitched but I ended up hand-stitching it upon stitching the button onto the flower. I don't know how to use the sewing machine and I don't even have that thing, so sometimes I settle for faux stitching (which I really seldom do). But why not hand-stitched, anyway? It also gives a different look on the project.

This second photo was taken with flash on. I wanted my viewers to see the sparkly red flower and sparkly flower on the girl's hat. I went over those flowers with Copic Spica glitter pen in Clear and Red. Btw, the lovely dp is from Basic Grey Two Scoops paper pad. It really is so lovely! My sentiment was from Hero Arts Cupcake set.

So....what do you think? ;) Did it turn out okay? Oh, the photo for my blog candy is already up. Check out this post to see it.

Thanks for looking and have a blessed Friday!
