Had a little play...

...with some of my birthday goodies, and have made a card that fits a couple of challenges. I used the Sketch & Stash sketch (although I did take a few liberties...squashing it to fit a square card, and leaving off the two flowers (more by accident than design! lol)); and this is also for Stamp with Fun's 'Birthday' challenge.
I used my new Magenta flower stamp (coloured with watercolour pencils), and two of my new Cuttlebug folders - 'Victoria' and 'Moroccan Screen'. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Fabulous Birthday' set by Hero Arts, and the ribbon is from Poppicrafts.
