Celebrate with Elegance

I don't know where this week has gone, but it's just gone... Thursday evening already. Following last week, when I had a lovely crafty week off work, this week I just haven't been able to get any time to get into my craft room. Last night my partner had to run to the mercy of a friend who had dropped their only set of keys (house and car) into a canal, and I thought I could be careless, needless to say it was a thankless task. However it gave me a great chance to nip into my craft room and make this card which I am entering into this weeks challenge over at Anything Goes Challenge Blog where the challenge is to make a birthday themed card using polka dots, in my case big dots. I am also entering this as my second entry into this weeks challenge over at Sweet stampin' Challenge Blog where the theme this week is ribbon and bows.
Stamped images are Clarity Stamps - Boudoir collection
stamped with sepia versafine ink pad
Mat and layered with Kraft card andblackcard stock
Polka dot paper is American crafts and recent purchase from Create & Craft (lovely collection)
Creative Expressions beaded swirls
Vintage lace ribbon finished with an old button from my stash and a couple of hat pins from stash.

Thanks for looking and I hopeyou all have a lovely thursday evening
