Happy Birthday

I made this card for a friend's birthday and am entering the Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenge.  The green card and ribbon are from my snippets drawer, so I'm also in the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank:  7” x 7” cream silk
Stamp: Hobby Art ‘Happy Birthday’
Die: Wild Rose Studio ‘Rose Bunch’
Embossing: X-cut Swirls embossing folder
Ink: Versafine Toffee
Colouring: Sandstone & Cinnamon Promarkers
Card: Light brown
Paper: Wild Rose Studio ‘Peach Blossom’
Snippets: Cream organza ribbon, green card

I layered a full sheet of Peach Blossom paper onto light brown card and attached it to the card front.  I trimmed another sheet of paper from the same pack, stamped the sentiment in the lower corner and then layered this onto light brown card before attaching it to the card front.  I die-cut the Rose Bunch from a snippet of green card and attached it across the centre panel.  The rose heads were die-cut from light brown card, embossed and then attached to the rose.  To finish, I coloured a snippet of cream organza ribbon to match the ink, made a small bow and attached it to the Rose Bunch.
