Birthday Wishes

It seems like I've been paper crafting up a storm lately and I still don't have everything done I want for all the challenges.  Today's card is for four different challenges so that will help a little.  I may have to do a second post one of these days just to get them all in. 

The card is based on this sketch by Card Patterns.

I turned it into a birthday card for Paper Playtime, and used a charm for Less is More's "How Charming". With the ribbon, it even fit Celebrate the Occasion's Happy Birthday - must use ribbon.

The printed paper is from K and Comapny, the green from Core-dinations.  I found matching ribbon in my stash and a star charm from an old bracelet.  (I bought the bracelet from a yard sale just to use the stars on it, and now I finally have.)  The sentiment was punched with an EK Success tag punch and then inked with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink so it was more the color of the papers.  I colored the pearls with a Mark-it pen.  I love being able to change colors of the bling with permanent markers.  This card went together so quick and easy that I made two of them at the same time.
