A birthday card for my mum

Good Evening all, I hope you are well - I am so tired today I was out last night for halloween we were all dressed as Zombies - one tip - fake blood doesn't wash off easily :) Any how I have made a card today for my mums birthday - it is to match the box I have made to put chocolates in. My mum loves all things goth like so this image from  DewDrop crafts is perfect. To make this card I followed the sketch and recipe on this weeks truly scrumptious challenge.

The recipie was 3 flowers, 3 brads and 3 pearls or gems. I dont know if you can tell from the pictures but I have used 3 flowers together 1 red 1 white and 1 black.

Here is the sketch;

And here is the card I made. I rotated the sketch 180 degrees. The patterened paper is actually wallpaper not an design paper but I think it is beautiful. I used this paper to make the box too which can be found a few posts down if you want to take a look. The image is the halloween Pixie from DewDrop crafts range of digi images.

Here is a close up of the image. I coloured her with copic markers.
