GD Card for Inspirational Card Sketches

Hi Guys,
How are you all? I am slowly recovering from my bug. I don't think I have ever had the flu but on this occasion I may even say I did :/ The docs said I have a chest, ear, throat and sinus infection. I feel like someone has been kicking my head in all the time, it is so sore. I have never been so down before, I just can't wait to get back to normal. Anyway enough of my moaning. Even though I have been ill, I have been crafting, mainly to distract me and I think in most cases it worked.

Today I am sharing my GD card for ICS. I love how this turned out, what do you think?

The sketch to me was crying out to use the Martha Stewart Garden Trellis punch. I folded the sides behind the image to act as an opening gate, I think this turned out lovely. There are 2 images on this card, both by CC Designs, one is Sweater Brigitta and the other is Field Fence. Both have been coloured with Promarkers. I distressed the edges a little and added a huge flower with a tiny flower in it and a happy birthday sentiment. I am running short on birthday cards after the Christmas rush.
