Crafty Calender May Challenge - Di's Digi Buddy in the Garden Birthday Card

Good morning I hope you are safe and well.  Here in the UK it is the May Day bank holiday weekend, so I'm making the most of the long weekend off work and have travelled to the north-west of England for a little holiday.

It is also the first Saturday in May so over at Crafty Calendar we have a new monthly challenge starting today and the theme this week is

For my card I have used:
Buddy in the Garden digital stamp from Di's Digi Stamps coloured with copics.
The background was created using the the Spellbinders Buffalo Plaid Press Plate, a BetterPress Cotton Card Panel and Vintage Photo Distress Archival ink in the BetterPress LetterPress System and then I ink-blended it with Mustard Seed Distress Ink.
The sentiment was hot foiled onto brown cardstock using the Spellbinders You are Everything Sentiments Press Plate and matt gold foil.
The flower was die cut using the Sizzix Small Tattered Florals Thinlet Die Set by Tim Holtz.
I wanted to add a bit of sparkle to the centre of all the flowers and in my stash I found an old bottle of Distress Stickles in Vintage Photo which was the perfect colour I was looking for.
