Happy birthday to you

This card is based on one of the sketches given for Sweet sketch Wednesday 2 142:

All papers are from my offcuts box + snippets of the decorated ribbon from Poundland and an upcycled bow. The Penny Black hedge word stamp was inked with memento tuxedo black and coloured with spectrum noir pens and mounted on to an offcut of red mirror card.
