LOTV's 9th Birthday

Lili of the Valley is celebrating their 9th birthday this week with a birthday card competion. The prize is 9 stamps of the winner's choice!! Plus the top 3 will be given the opportunity to be guest designers!! How awesome is that!! Here is my card using Rosie With Cake.

I started with a dark brown 5x5 card base. I added a piece of pink card stock cut just slightly smaller than the base. I embossed a piece of white card stock using a dot folder and added it to the bottom of the card.  I cut a strip of pink & brown striped patterned paper and backed it in dark brown. I punched the bottom of the dark brown card stock using an eyelet lace border punch and added a brown dotted ribbon across the middle before adding it just above the embossed card stock.  I colored the image using Spectrum Noir and American Crafts Chromatix pens. I stamped the sentiment on white card stock and then backed both the image and the sentiment in pink and then again in dark brown.  I added 3 white pearls to the top corner.  I tied a knot out of the ribbon and added it beside the image.  I added crystal stickles to the headband and flame on the image.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
