Happy birthday to you

Happy Wednesday! Today I'm sharing a birthday card I made using this week's sketch from Mojo Monday:

And now for the paper yummies:
I just loved this multi-colored plaid patterned paper from My Mind's Eye, and wanted to pull some of the colors from the plaid into my stamped image. I heat-embossed the stamp (by Hampton Art), then colored it in with Prismacolor markers and added Stickles to the bow. The sentiment is a rub-on from American Crafts. I machine-stitched some wavy lines along the edges of the patterned paper, and finished it off with some adorable ribbon from Making Memories. Here's a closer view:
I'm playing along here:
