A La Card Monkey's 100th Challenge

So I finally found the time, after 3 weeks of work non-stop, to make a card. It always helps if you have some motivation to help you along the way. My motivation this time came from A La Card Monkey. Its a wonderful challenge blog and they are celebrating their 100th challenge with a huge blog candy for the winner of the challenge. Someone is going to be really lucky. Here is the sketch we had to follow and plus our card had to celebrate something.

A friend of mine is having a birthday soon and I decide to make this card for her. The flower, as usual, comes from Fred She Said, and no, I'm not tired of them yet. Love the effect they have on a card. My friend Regena embossed the paper for me. The ribbon comes from Walmart. Love the fact that its so cheap. I prefer to use plain ribbon any day and plus its only .50 a roll of ribbon. You won't find a better deal anywhere else... anyway not that I know of.
Well enough with my chatter. I've been waiting long enough to put up a post, here is my card
I would like to enter this card into the current challenges:
  1. A La Card Monkey 100th Challenge - Sketch with Celebration
  2. Simon Says Stamp Challenges - Bingo (Charms, Punches Ribbon)
  3. Wild Orchid Challenge - Bingo (Embossing, Flowers, Pins)

Oh and before I go I would like to tell you all about a wonderful giveaway that Luanne is having. She is having a Mothers Day special giveaway and its on now till May 13.
