From the Heart Stamps - Thank You Card - Pelican

Hi Hi!
I almost forgot that I needed to send my Nan a thank you card, for our trip to Sydney last week, so today, after finishing an assignment, I sat down and created one, fairly quickly.
I also wanted to let you know... I have a coupon code available for my Etsy store
15% off ALL orders with coupon code ASSIGNMENTCLEARANCE - Until June 1st.
Anyway, onto my card!
I started off with the pelican digital stamp, by From the Heart Stamps, he's been sitting on my desk for weeks, waiting to be coloured! My nan absolutely loves pelicans, and paints them quite a lot on her pottery, so she'll really appreciate this guy!
I used my Spectrum Noir markers to colour him up, and the fussy cut him out. Once that was done, I grabbed some really old My Minds Eye patterned papers and doodled around the edges of them. I stamped the sentiment (Simon Says Stamp) and added a wooden heart, sequins and bling to finish off the card.
Here's the close up -
