Sketch Saturday meets Whiff of Joy

I combined a couple of challenges to make a birthday card for my blogging buddy Carol...her birthday's not 'til Thursday, so I've told her not to peek! lol I've used the fab Sketch Saturday Challenge sketch, and the Whiff of Joy Challenge theme of 'Stars & Stripes'. The main image is 'Henry - Celebrating Mouse', and the yummy papers are all by BasicGrey ('Bittersweet'). The stars were all cut using Nesties, the sentiment is from the 'Circular Greetings' set by Woodware, and the ribbon is from Poppicrafts.

Hope you have a fab day on Thursday Carol!
