Happy Birthday

Hello Again,
Well as I said I have 2 posts today and this is the second. It is yet another using the Augusts Viva La Verve sketch #2.
I think this is such a fun sketch to use.

Here is my card.

This card is a 6x6 tent fold card which I matted on to it this wonderful flower paper, I'm afraid I can't remember where it came from but I have kept this small piece for a very long time!
I used some brown with cream dot satin ribbon and a big brown button which I saw one of the Diva's tying the bow behind and thought 'how cute' so I coppied.
The Happy Birthday is a plain Jane but no longer available. I stamped that using Espresso and cut it out with a stiched square die with a couple of mats for good measure. The distressed flower paper on the horizontal strip is also a precious save.
To finish off I added a few blooms and sprightly sprigs, then some dots of Liquid Pearls in platinum.

I am also entering this card in to the challenge over at  lil patch of crafty friends 

Thanks for stopping by.
