The Greeting Farm and Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration Elementary Elegance and I create a Birthday Card

Hi guys! I have a card to show quickly before I head to bed.
I started out by stamping this little chicky on watercolour paper, and colouring her with my Stampin' Write Markers and a blender pen (anyone surprised?) Then I cut her out carefully and popped her on a Spellbinders Nestability, which I'd stamped with Perfect Plum and Elementary Elegance for the sentiment. Then using the colours of the watercoloured image, I built my card. I used a Perfect Plum card base, with some Daffodil Delight Designer Series Paper, and card stock. I wrapped some Rose Red Seam Binding ribbon around, and tied a bow. The green patterned paper is from Kaisercraft. I rounded the corners of the card, and figured this one was done :)
I am entering this into the iSpySketches Sketch 1 Challenge. I was introduced to this wonderful new challenge blog by one of my craft idols Danielle Daws as she is on their Design Team. I really liked the sketch, but being me, I turned it on it's side and changed it to a regular card size. 
Thanks for popping by!
