Happy Birthday Sister!

Sooo, yesterday was my sister's birthday, which means that I finally get to share the card I made her a few weeks ago:

I made this using a LOTV sentiment stamp, stamped in distress ink.  I also followed a sketch over at the LOTV blog, where they have a new sketch every Saturday now.

I then layered the stamped panel onto some craft gauze (I love using craft gauze - it makes everything so pretty), then some flocked paper from my stash - This was a freebie at some point from a magazine but it was ages ago and I can't remember which.  I then layered this into some aqua paper.  

I wrapped the whole panel with some blue organza ribbon along the left hand side, but I don't think it shows up very well in the photos.  This was kindly donated to my stash by my friend, Mandy, following her wedding last year.

I decided to leave some white space on the card, so didn't cover it like I usually would.

Once the panel was fixed to the card, I added the finishing touches - the large blue organza bow at the bottom, blue flat backed pearls and some little flowers on the left hand side.

I then decided that this was good enough for my sister for her birthday, so I added 'sister' in gold sparkly letters along the top of the stamped panel.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
