My Minds Eye Paper Pad paired with some pretty roses and Coral Ribbon and I create a Birthday Card

Hi guys! I created this card last night, and because it was getting super late, decided I'd post it today... I got distracted, but here it is!
I started off going through the My Minds Eye papers, trying to decide which one I wanted to use. I settled on this one, as I was also keen to use some scrap card I had left over from a workshop I did. The card base is Stampin' Up! Always Artichoke and layered the paper down on top. I then used some gorgeous 5/8" Coral Satin Grosgrain Double Band Ribbon from The Ribbon Carousel, as luck would have it, it matched perfectly to the flowers on the My Minds Eye paper! I then cut out a Spellbinders Nestabilities Label in Always Artichoke and a Oval in Whisper White. The sentiment is one from an unnamed stamp I bought a while back, that hasn't seen nearly enough love, and was stamped in Stampin' Up!'s Calypso Coral. I added three little white roses (which are from D-Lish Scraps
I am entering this into the Ribbon Carousel Anything Goes challenge and the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge, which I followed fairly loosely. I couldn't get the 'tickets' to work for me, so I omitted them from my design... 
Thanks for stopping by!
