Birthday card for a friend

Morning all from a foggy damp and dull Derbyshire its yuck we had a lovely day on Saturday blue sky and sunshine yes sunshine but we have paid for it since Sunday was thick fog and today not much better very depressing Sunday we had a run out to the garden centre at Findern and we took the next door neighbour with us he is 93 for a break from the house it was really pleasant as they had mince pies and non alcoholic mulled wine free as you arrived a lovely touch and a wonderful display of Christmas trees ornaments lights and of course gifts where i was able to find a gift for my friends birthday next week and after we got back i made her a card using a Su set called Everything Eleanor i just love this set its my favorite of all, the card i used is SU Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip along with two of SU pearls the largest on the sheet and finally the sentiment came from the SU set Happiest Birthday Wishes its a hostess set that i got from holding a party a while back anyway i hope you like it
I would like to enter it into the sketch challenge over at freshly made sketches this is there link
