Annabelle Stamps - Tomorrows Dream; Get Well Card

Hi guys! Sorry for the lengthy delay in blog posts!
I've had my operation, and I'm recovering well. Just a brand new learning experience. 
I crafted last night, after returning home (from my parents house). I had a whole bunch of new stuff arrive while I was away, including a parcel from Annabelle Stamps, from my challenge win there recently! I chose to get another one of their addictive stamp sets, and ended up with this one in my cart... So, I inked her up for the Annabelle Stamps most recent challenge - Licorice and White
Here is my card -
I stamped and coloured the image, using the Ice Grey colours from my Spectrum Noir Makrers, and then fussy cut the chicky out. I embossed two pieces of white card stock, using a new addition (to my craft stash) the cloud embossing folder, from Stampin' Up! and mounted them on to black card. All my borders were doodled before embossing. Before adhering the layers together, I added a strip of black satin ribbon between them. I then added a diamond shape and my sentiment, which is from MFT. I finished it all off with three black rhinestones. 
Here is the close up
I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches and the Annabelle Stamps Licorice and White challenge for inspiration 
My MadeIt store is back open as well, so, pop on in and take a look :)
