Birthday Card for a Special Friend

I have made this card for a very special friend's birthday.  We have been friends for quite a few years now and she just loves her fairies. 

The Rose Fairy I have stamped and coloured in using my Spectrum Noir pens.  This is my second project using these pens and I just love them.  I have masked the wings and sprayed with Crafters Companion Spray and Sparkle Iridescent spary and then distressed around the edges with spun sugar.  I have made a border using Martha Stewart Ribbon border punch and threaded ribbon through and made a bow.  I have added rosebuds to the corner by first binding them together with ribbon and adding a bow.  I love using ribbons and flowers on my cards.  The swirl and gems are from my stash.  On the deeper pink I have attached a beautiful organza sheet which I bought from HobbyFun they have a real variety of these organza sheets in A4 size.

The verse I have printed off from the Flower Fairies CD and reads:
Thank you for your friendship true,
for being there and being you,
for your heart so good and kind,
a truer friend I could not find.
Happy Birthday
