Happy Birthday - Flower Swing

Hi everyone, I have a card here that I made for my cousin's birthday yesterday.  I just hope it was not too girly for her.  I just had to use my new stamp it is so pretty.  It is a Sparkle and Sprinkle  - Dani's Swing.  So I inked her up with my brown Staz-on ink and then coloured her in with my water colour pencils and aquabrush.  Layered the image up on the pink and green card.  The lovely flower background paper is from a pack called Something Special...such pretty papers.  I made up a hat pin using beads I found in my stash and the lovely white organza ribbon.  Punched out the layered ovals and added the white Happy Birthday greeting sticker.  Finished with three paper flowers with orange circles punch for the centres.

Take care and have a great Thursday.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.

(the paper has been in my stash a little, really everything is from my stash)

  7. I was already to offer some words of comfort last weekend when you mentioned the cruise option but the post had gone the next day.Don't let the language difference stop you, we only speak English but have never had any problems.
    The build a sketch card is a lovely colour but the acetate pick 3 is my favourite.

    Have a great weekend.
