Patchwork Warren

Last Thursday it was my neighbour, Rosalie's birthday. Rosalie is also one of my closest friends. She loves the colour blue, so of course the card I made her was predominantly blue. 
Early this year I bought some Spellbinders Hexagonal Dies, and I am ashamed to admit that this is the first time I have used them. I used the smallest die in the set to cut the pretty papers, that were free with a magazine. When I attached them to the cardstock, I added faux stitching. 

The image with matching greeting is Warren by Craftwork Cards. I bought several packs of assorted images of Warren several years ago, at a craft show at 'Ally Pally' in London. He can be coloured with most media. As I write this, some of you will be at the same show at 'Ally Pally'. (How I wish I could join you!!).
The inside of my card is fairly basic with a large area on which I wrote my birthday Message to Rosalie.
