May your birthday

Hello my friends, here I come again with my second post for today. I've been in an inspired mood yesterday and today and I love these days so much that here you have another card. I have to confess something, I really love this card!!! It is so elegant, I hope the picture can make it justice.

I started my card base with the new Bubblegum Pink CS ( I bought it last month and I just used it, ashamed of me), I cuttlebugged a piece of White PL CS with textile folder and sponged the borders with Tea Dye Distress Ink. Then I matted and stitched a piece of Bubblegum Pink with some DP (Postcards form Paris & Sweet as Cherry Pie "Love this paper!!!!") , added some Satin Ribbon with gold staples and Prima flower. The sentiment was stamped in White CS and Espresso Ink.

I am submitting this card to the following challenges:
Sketch: Card Patterns.
Monochromatic : Caarvarks.
Flowers: Stampin' Sisters in Christ.
Layers: Stamp Something.
Birthday: Little Paper Shop.
