Cactus Birthday

Hi, I stamped this cactus image at my sister's a few months ago. The stamp belongs to a friend near her, thanks Amanda :), so I'm not sure of the brand.
I used Versafine ink and clear embossing powder then fussy cut it. I coloured the cactus with distress inks then used my Prismacolor pencils and gamsol to add some shading. The base card is embossed with my Tim Holtz Sizzix woodgrain folder. 

I'm linking up to these challenges:
Addicted to Stamps & More, anything goes.
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, Got ink. I used crushed olive and shabby shutters distress ink on my cactus and antique linen and tea dye ink on my layer behind the cactus.

Thanks for visiting :)
