Sketch Saturday #50, Birthday Wishes

Hi folks!
A different sized card than my usual square card today. This one is an A5 card and I made it for my fellow DT Buddy *Wendy* who celebrated a special birthday yesterday.
The sketch is by the talented Jo for The Sketch Saturday Challenge. There is a smashing prize up for grabs. A $25 voucher for Simon Says Stamps could be yours if you are the lucky winner. Don't forget to check out all the fab crafty makes by the Sketch Saturday Design Team.

For my card I have used papers from the huge Cosmo Cricket set from QVC. The stamp is a Penny Black, I have coloured it in with my trusty Koi water colours. I have used a Martha Stewart border punch and the scallop blade for my carl trimmer to create the ornate border. The sentimement is Hot Off The Press. I finished off the card with some paper roses with green ribbon looped and adhered to suggest leaves. The ornate corners are die cut Cuttlebug shapes. You can hardly see them but I squeezed some three dimensional pearl paint onto the teddy's neck lace and the girls buttons.
If you would like to see some more detail to my cards then feel free to click on the picture to enlarge it.
Ciao for now!
