Stampin' Up! So Happy For You and I create a Monochromatic Birthday Card

Hi! I have spent the last few hours in my craft room water colouring... I find it is such a relaxing past time, now that I'm getting my head around using the Stampin' Write Markers as watercolour markers.... Here is one of the images I have coloured and made into a card...
This little cutie is from My Favourite Things and it was great fun colouring her in... I don't know why I chose greens, but any way... The Stampin' Write Markers I have used are: Blush Blossom, Chocolate Chip, Crumbcake, Basic Black, Old Olive, Wild Wasabi and Certainly Celery. I have cut her out and mounted her on Very Vanilla cardstock with a piece of Certainly Celery shaped using my Scallop Border punch and a piece of Wild Wasabi Ribbon (this one is retired now) I have mounted the image panel onto some Wild Wasabi Card and before attaching it to my card base, I stamped the sentiment from So Happy For You, a retired Sale-a-bration set in Wild Wasabi. 
I am entering this into three challenges, the first is the Less is More challenge, to use Ribbon or Buttons on a CAS card, the second is the Jac-inks Monochrome Challenge and the Card Patterns Sketch (below)
Well, it's almost 2am here, so I'm calling it a night.... 
Happy Stamping!

Wonderful card. In the first place i thougt that you've used paperpiecing to dress up your stamp. But you've coloured it. Wonderful colouring!
