Wet day birthday card !

What a miserable day today has been, talk about wet and grey ! But, on the other hand what a perfect day for spending in my craft room ! I made sure I was on top of things yesterday so that today was going to be a totally craft day.
I've made this card for my best friend's birthday, which is on Friday of this week. She's a real chocoholic so I thought this gorgeous Tim Holtz stamp would fit the bill nicely. I've stamped it onto this gorgeous Prima paper, which I've also stamped onto with a Katzelkraft stamp. I've mounted it onto a piece of card that I've used Shabby Shutters DI and then stamped with the text stamp from the same Tim Holtz set. I've cut it out with Labels 14 Nestabilites. The larger shape has been made with Victorian Velvet DI and then I've stamped the Katzelkraft swirl in Shabby Shutters DI and cut it out with Labels 14 Nestabilities.

The circle is cut out using a circle Nestability and it is the reverse of the Prima paper. The ticket is a freebie stamp that came with a Craft Stamper magazine ages ago and the swirl is a Tim Holtz die.

The flower is made with Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die, Stampin' Up En Francais background stamp and the centre flower is a Katzelkraft stamp.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Well I think I'm going to head off back to my craft room and have a bit more play time !
