Birthday Card for Paper Players Sketch #130

I made this card for a young lady who is a fan of the color green.  The patterned paper is from "Chantilly" a new release from Close to My Heart which debuts on Friday, February 1.  The card follows the Paper Players Sketch #130 and uses the colors Sweet Leaf and Topiary.  The card base was run through the Cuttlebug machine with the Musical Flourish Embossing folder--one of my favorites.  The greeting is from Salutation Seals and was stamped in Topiary ink.  The scalloped label frame was cut with the Artiste cartridge (pg. 56, accent 3 shift cut at 2.5"). 3D Foam Tape,  3/8" white grosgrain ribbon and Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel were the final embellishments to the card.

Here is the sketch I followed:

I'm also entering this card into Come and Get it Challenges--Tic Tac Toe  (I used from left top to bottom right Glitter (on patterned paper), free and ribbon),
Sunny Challenges and Creations--birthday theme and
Sweet Stampin' Challenge--use ribbon
