Happy 'Bird-Day' to you card

The challenge this week at Birthday Sundaes is to make a birthday card with ribbon on it.  Easy!  They have a great prize up for grabs this week, a set of stamps from 'My Craft Spot' which I would LOVE to win!  I was also very excited to see that they had my 'train-tastic' card as one of their favourites from last week.  Thanks everyone at Birthday Sundaes!  I am really having fun participating in their challenges.  Birthday cards are my favourite to make so I enjoy checking out their website for the new challenges.
This card kept changing and changing from how I first imagined it.  At first it was going to be just pinks and greens....then it was on a 6x6 inch card...then that looked strange because the elements were too small...then the pinks and greens made way for these fun colours...anyway after lots of cropping and colour changing I came up with this!  And despite it looking nothing like I first intended, I am happy with the result (and happy that I FINALLY finished it!)

I used this Mojo Monday sketch for the layout of my card:
I loved this sketch and I will probably use it again for other cards.  Mojo Monday have some great stamps up for grabs this week too.  For every 50 entries for the sketch they are giving away one set of stamps.  Hope I'm one of the lucky ones!

I'm also going to enter this card in the Kraft Journal  'Lavish Layers' challenge (thanks for letting me know about it Beth!)  Have just found this site and there are some really gorgeous cards on there.

The papers I used are from My Minds Eye 'Life of the Party' collection.  The bird, circle and scalloped circle are all from the 'Birthday Bash' cricut cartridge - one of my favourite cartridges.  The letter stickers are from Kaisercraft.

Thanks for looking!
