Happy Birthday, My Sweet Friend

I bought a set of beautiful stamps and haven't been able to use them yet.  Since there are a few upcoming birthdays (for a few sweet friends), I have decided to finally break into them.   This is the first in a series of projects I'm making with these stamps. 

I stamped and coloured the image in order to match the background paper and the overall colour theme.  I don't own any Copic Markers yet, so I'm using the water based Tombow markers.  One thing I learned is that the hybrid ink I used still bleeds a little into the colouring, so I may try some different markers next time.   

I doubled matted the image, and also double matted the patterned paper in the background.  In order to make the image 'pop' a little more, I used dimensional foam squares.

A very simple card for my very sweet friend...  :)
