Birthday Girl with Ribbon Rosette

 Good morning. What a bright and beautiful Spring day it is here in Gloucestershire. The central heating is off, the windows are open and the freshness in the air is fabulous. 
Today's share is another girly birthday card as I have so many female birthdays this month - so that's another one ticked off the list :o)

I took my initial inspiration for this one from the Ribbon & Lace challenge at Lil's Little Fairies this week and I knew I just had to ink up one of my gorgeous new stamps - isn't she beautiful?
Image - Pretty Bouquet - coloured with PM's & Flexmarkers 

I won the scrummy DP's in a blog candy from Karen - thanks hun I love them :o)

I had a go at making a Ribbon Rosette using trhe sewing and gathering technique - I'm quite pleased wqith how my first attempt turned out :o)
I added a gorgeous Kaisercraft Sparklet to the centre to finish it off.
