A fluffy birthday

This is another card I made over a week ago and haven't had time to post. It was for my sons God mothers birthday a couple of days ago and this was the card I made for her from him. His God mother whom he calls auntie is truly a pink Princess at heart but isn't the kind of lady to wear pink at all, so we hoped this might make her laugh, or at least smile.

The image is a freebie Mo manning and is coloured with a mix of Promarkers and sakura glaze pens and the dressing gown is coloured with pink flock so it is touchy feely. I decided with such strong colours, my son wanted similar colours to their decor that I would use some brown wrapping paper for the backing paper and stamped some pink daises which I think I got from stamp addicts in pink brilliance ink on it to break us the paper. I finished with a deep beige satin ribbon, and a pink happy birthday peel-off.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:_

Sketch and stash-layout I've had the image printed out  for months and the flock for over a year and never used.
