Autumn birthday

Today I'm finally back with a card using one of  the fabulous stamps from sweetpea stamps. This one is by designer Meredith Dillman called Diamond. I wanted to make an autumn themed birthday card, but without the usual brownish colours or the obvious leaves. I think this one pulls it off, even if there are a lot of flowers on it. The shades remind me of this time of the year: the last warm days and signs of summer. The papers are from basic grey's june bug and green at heart line. Don't they work beautifully together? I also added some free-hand doodling (the x:es and running stitches) as I think they add something to the card. And as always I've used my promarkers to color the image although I just got myself a bunch of copics...
