Difficult Sketch Challenge

This was for today's Sketch Challenge at SCS. Let me tell you, I had such a difficult time with this sketch! It took me FAR too long to make this card. Of course, it could have seemed longer because Arwen just wouldn't nap, and that's when I usually get my stamping done. I'm glad I stuck it out because I'm happy with the card, but I almost gave up a number of times. This is the first time I've used this orange ribbon. I won it quite a while ago from one of Beate's Fresh and Fun Freebies! I just LOVE the ribbon, but I don't usually use orange so I made a point of using it today! I think it ended up being a fun Happy Birthday card! Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Party Punch; Ink- Pumpkin Pie, Not Quite Navy, Basic Black; Paper- Wild Asparagus, Not Quite Navy, Shimmery White; Accessories- horizontal slot punch, Making Memories brads, Designer Label tag punch, May Arts ribbon.
