Mixing Digi's with Rubber

Hi Crafters, hope your all well and safe, I've been watching the news today and my thoughts and prayers go out to all those poor people affected by the earthquake and tsunami's today, its scary enough watching it on tv, I can't imagine what some people are having to deal with today.
Ok, I've a little card to share with you, I had so much fun making it, I love to colour and I love to cut, find it very theraputic and on top of that, this card was a bit of an experiment that turned out better than I thought, so double happy. First I found this little st. patricks day shamrock wreath digi on squigglefly, I was looking for something 'st.paddy like' to make a card for my sister, not only is her birthday on St. Patricks Day, she's from here (N.Ireland), lives in Gibraltar and works in an Irish Bar lol. So I coloured the wreath with promarkers and cut it out, then couldn't decide what to put in the middle, well of course out came my waltzingmouse stamps, the first set I chose was 'Earth Angel' but when I was finished she looked so lonely in that big wreath so I reached for another set 'Irish Blessings' and I masked the little angel/girl and stamped the little cottage ontop so It became the background, so chuffed! and when I bought my 'Irish Blessings' set I got a free 'St. Patricks Day' sentiment so it all came together nicely. I am entering this card into the following challenges:
