An Ace of a birthday card

The current challenge at both Trimgym and CRAFT challenge is to use a playing card on the creation.  Trimgym has supplied a paper to be used for that challenge.  Details of the challenges can be found here:

CRAFT Challenge

I opted to use the playing card paper supplied by Trimgym for both challenges:

I have used:
Trimgym paper
Corner rounder punch
Happy Birthday acrylic stamp (brand unknown)
Mounting foam

I printed out the Trimgym paper twice - once on 100gsm paper and the other on 160gsm card.  I adhered the paper one to the card blank and then cut the Ace of Diamonds only from the card one.  I raised this over the top of the paper.  I then cut a strip from the remainder of the 100gsm paper and adhered this over the bottom of the card and stamped a sentiment on top.  To finish off the card I rounded the four corners of the card to represent the playing card.
