Not quite a Red Admiral!

Evening all

Today's card is for my neighbour who kindly helps us out with watering the garden and feeding the fish when we're on our hols.  It's her birthday tomorrow, and I just wanted to make her a card to help show how much we value her.  I don't know her VERY well, so it's a bit pot luck as to whether she'll like it, but I do, so I guess I'll have to be happy with that, lol.   The black and white spotty paper is from an old Papermania pad (I think), the red and black card is from my basic card stock, and I cut the red circle with a Marianne Design die.   The image is Ching Chou Kuik, and I've coloured it with distress inks.  I don't think Sue is into 'pretty, pretty' if you know what I mean, so I didn't want to go over the top with flowers, and decided that the black feather with just one small flower was about right.  The sentiment was stamped with one of my staples, again from Papermania.  A little red homemade card candy for the corners, and that's the lot.

Thanks for looking.
