A bithday Card

Good Evening ladies I hope you are all well today. I have had a wonderful weekend. Me and my husband went out for our friends birthday last night, we all dressed as mimes :) I will put a picture at the bottom of this post to show you - it was so much fun doing all the make up and such a laugh. 

Ok so here is a birthday card I made for my stash, I am trying to get a few ready made so that when I start making my brothers wedding invitations I have some cards ready in case I need them as the invitations are going to take a lot of my time. 

The papers are from the 'Bloom and grow' collection and I just LOVE them think I am going to have to buy some more of these very soon. The pearl is from Quixotic paperie. I ave never used one of these in a card before, I bought them ages ago because they looked pretty and then panicked because I had absolouly no idea what to do with them. I am going to a card class on the 04th June with Brenda at Sir Stamplaot so I am hoping to take these with me and get some advice :D big cheesy grin. 
Here is another view of the card, I always decorate the inside to some extent;

The image is coloured with copics as always :) the sentiment is stamped and then punched out. I really need to get some new punches though because i bought some completley the wrong flippin size so I can't use them together :( 

Anyhow I am entering this card in to the following challenges;
