To Grandmother's House

Here is another card I created using this week's sketch from Simon Says Stamp.

I started with a marine blue card base.  I added a piece of red card stock backed in white card stock.  I added a strip of red gingham patterned paper down the side.  I punched a strip of white card stock using an eyelet lace border punch and added a turquoise  dotted ribbon to it and added it across the middle of the card.  I stamped the sentiment "happy birthday" onto a piece of white card stock and backed it in marine blue card stock.  The image I used is To Grandmother's House from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I colored it using crayola and prisma colored pencils.  I added 3 turquoise  rhinestones to the corner of the image and 3 more to the bottom of the gingham strip.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
