Girly Birthday card

I played around for a couple of days with this card. My mojo was at a bit of a low but in the end it came together. I was twiddling with the ribbon when I had an idea to leave it curly and add it to my card. It's a little bit different but does not show up as well in this picture as it does in the flesh, as to speak.  I have had this Lilly of the Valley image for some months now and decided I needed to make an effort and use it. It is so cute and I added some glitter to the cake to gift it a lift. Once again it does not show well here but does sparkles like crazy. The Pink card was a bit overpowering so I managed to tone it down by using small ammounts. I do love pricking the edges of my cards to make faux stitching. I found a fine Pink liner  pen almost the same colour as my card to finished off the stitched edge.
I have entered this card into the challenges listed below. favourite colour combo

Hi Shirl

What a lovely card I love what you've done with the ribbon all twirly wirly - and how you've managed to match the faux stitching colour to the pink matts - must have taken ages to get it all "just perfect" (ha ha).

See you later
