Floral Birthday

Hi Folks
Well, I have finally come down with a stinking cold.  Was hoping to have avoided it but not to be.  I am also on a training course at work this week so the worst time to get ill.  But only got tomorrow to get through and then it's the weekend.

My card share today is something a bit different for me.  I have actually used one of my flower stamps that I have had for ages.  I bought the stamp from Sir Stampalot in one of their sales last year.

I used the sketch over at Sunday Sketch and Stamp.  I coloured the image using my promarkers.  The papers are from Papermania Capsule Collection matted onto coredinations cardstock.  The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons (a recent purchase).  For embellishements I added a simple flower, a pin, some little ladybirds and sentiments.
This card is one my sister asked me to make.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Sunday Sketch and Stamp - use sketch
Cards Galore - Anything goes
Catch the Bug - Anything goes
Totally Gorjuss - Anything goes with ribbon
Robyns Fetish - Anything goes
Sweet Stamps - Die cut and flower stamp
MAWTT - Floral delights
Charisma Cardz - Happy Birthday
Pretty Little Ribbon - Flowers and ribbon

Thanks for popping by and welcome to my new followers.  It means a lot to me that you like my creations enough to want to follow me.  I am now going for a little wander around blogland.  Don't think I will be too late in my bed tonight.
Take care now.
