Birthday Wishes

I created this birthday card using this gorgeous floral paper from My Minds Eye.  I added a strip of blue-gray card stock across the bottom. I punched the bottom of the strip using an eyelet lace border punch from Martha Stewart Crafts and added garnet red ribbon to the top.  I stamped the birthday sentiment under the bow and added 3 garnet red pearls.  The image was stamped onto white card stock, cut out in an oval, backed in garnet red card stock and cut out using scalloped scissors.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
