British Special Day

Hey, made this card the new Olympic things :) And love the coin I found in my stash! (yes mine not mums!)

I coloured this Penny Black image with promarkers and copics pens. I cut it into a Go Kreate's rectangular frame Frilly #1 and edged it with blue ink. I cut a backing paper from the Forever Friends Best of British Designstax for the base of the card. I also edged the edge of the base card with blue ink. I stuck the image to one side and a sentiment on the other. I backed the 'On Your Special Day' sentiment with red card and raised it with foam tape. I used red ribbon with white lace on top across the bottom of the card and attached round silver and heart red gems alternately. I then embellished the card with a red bow on the image. I embossed an arrow with Cosmic Shimmer Tropic Aqua Blaze embossing powder and attached that under the bottom of the sentiment. To finish, I stuck on a coin and two buttons from the Papermanic Portobello Road WW1 mini buttons set.
I would like to enter this challenge in the following challenges: -
