A sketchy birthday card...

Over at Eat, Sleep, Stamp - we are on Sketch Challenge #34! Now I say that as if I have done the first 33, and let me assure you - I have not! LOL I actually started at #33, but after looking over Tracy's blog, I liked the sketches, so this is probably going to be a regular for me!
This card is also for Card*a*licious #20. The challenge over there is blue, green, circles and birthday. No need for explaination for the blue, green and circles - I think they are obviously....don't see the "birthday" part? Well, it's hidden, but it's there! It's in that cute little flower. See?!?!?!? I thought this was the neatest thing! Sometimes I impress myself! LOL (It obviously doesn't take too much!)


Below you will find a third picture of this same card. I was having ribbon/bow issues. Wasn't sure if the bow made it too busy - but I think without the bow might make it too plain. So - bow or no bow? The more I look, the more I like the bow, but give me your opinion please! I would certainly appreciate it.



And that's about all for this one - oops! almost forgot - both the stamps are Lizzie Anne Designs. I think (please don't quote me) they are retiring this set and the sentiments in it are great!
As always, thank you for taking a little bit of time out of your day to come and visit my blog. I certainly appreciate it!

This is so CLEVER, Vickilyn! Really like the idea! I LIKE THE BOW :)... and the way you made your flower looks GREAT - the added embossing is a nice touch!
