Happy Birthday in blue and brown

I made the card and had it sitting on my desk for a couple days.  I just didn't like how the stamped image and sentiment were lost on the brown paper.  So I changed it.  :o)  Here is the new card even if the challenge is over.  :o)

It has been over a month since I posted on here but that doesn't mean I haven't been making cards.  Christmas cards was the priority!  Now that things have calmed down and I don't have to mass produce cards, I can play along with some challenges again!  My Mommy's birthday is on January 8th so I decided to make one for her tonight.  I went to some of my favorite blogs for inspiration:

Allsorts Challenge wants us to use brown and blue.
A la Card Monkey had a cute sketch challenge:
And here is my card:

I simply layered solid and patterned paper.  Used my lace edge punch on the blue layer.
The flower stamp in from Stampin Up!  Happy Birthday is a hand me down random stamp.  Both stamped in SU! Chocolate Chip ink.
Added cream colored lace and brown ribbon to finish it off.

Thanks for swinging by!
