Birthday Wishes

Boy is seems I haven't posted in forever, sorry I will try to be better this week.  I do have a few cards ready to post so hopefully I will get them posted soon.  For my card today I made it for a few challenges listed below.
It is hard to tell in the photo that I sponged the background around the flowers with memento new sprout.  I also tried something new to me, I colored some white grosgrain ribbon with a copic marker.  It is so fast and easy, I will be doing this technique again very soon.  It is a perfect way to coordinate your embellishments.  Thank you for stopping by.
