Birthday card for a friend

Good morning everyone, here I am at stoopid o'clock. Can't sleep cuz I'm coughing fit to bust! I hope all is well with everyone, and that the floods didn't get any worse {{{{{hugs}}}}}
My card for today was for my very good friend PatEssex (Docrafts), whose birthday was last week.

White hammered card from The Paper Mill Shop was folded and cut to 7x5 for the base card. For the main panel, I swiped dewdrop inkpads over a piece of plain white card, a technique I have copied from The lovely Elizabeth (Silver Scrapper).
Then I stamped with a mixture of stamps in Memento Tuxedo Black and London Fog.
Flutterbies were punched with Martha Stewart and the foliage is from a Cheery Lynn die, and mounted onto a dull silver mat :o)

Such a beautiful card Jackie! You are obviously very creative when suffering from insomnia! Hope you get better soon. You don't have floods there do you? Are you Debyshire way? That's where I met my husband - we were both working at Kingsway Hospital! Xxx
