Birthday Wishes

Happy Friday!!  It's time for another challenge from Jo's Scrap Shack.  As always, we are now an Anything Goes challenge and our sponsor for this week is Little Blue Button Stamps. 

Here is my card using one of the adorable images from Little Blue Button Stamps:
     I believe this is the first time I have colored black hair, and I am quite please with how it turned out.  I usually color my images with brown hair or sometimes dark blonde, because, well, I have very dark brown hair and I have a bunch of brown markers. : )  But anyway, this cute little girl looked like she should have black hair, so I obliged.  But of course, her kitty had to be gray as I have had two pure gray cats and now have a gray stripey.
     The starting point for this card was actually the ribbon.  I had a ribbon disaster a while ago, where all my loose ribbons fell off onto the floor and most of them are still there.  So, I decided to pick a piece and work with it and this purple and tan checked piece was just a short piece and was begging to be used.  Luckily I had a piece of card stock just the perfect shade of purple to go along with it.  And, I did pick up and put away a bunch of the ribbons from the floor, though there are still a bunch there.  Maybe one will inspire my next card.

Such a sweet card, loving your colours. Great background paper, loving how the ribbon accident was the main focus for this beautiful card.
