Joan's Challenge Birthday For A Friend

Good Evening Ladies,
This cold is really taking it out of me. I wish it would go away! My husband did go to the store and buy some sinus headache stuff. At least now I can sit up and do something. Even if it is just making a card for Joan's Challenge Birthday For A Friend.
Here is the link to the challenge...
Here are the challenge requirements:
Use a plaid background
Use something dimensional
Use an embossing folder
Make a friend a birthday card
Use something that can be purchased at Joan's.
Here is my card....
To create this card I started with an embossing folder. As I have said before I don't have many embossing folders so that was going to set the theme. I did this in pink card stock. The folder I used is from a Cuttlebug set measure by measure. I stamped Happy Birthday in the oval with black memento ink. My plaid cardstock is from a DCWV stack. The little girl in the flower garden is from the Graphics 45 pad The Secret Garden. I purchased this pad at Joan's. It is the 8x8 pad. I sure have gotten a lot of mileage out of this pad. I used the Memory Box die Lavish Branch #98486. It was cut with blue cardstock. This die was also purchased at Joan's. I added pink pearls by Kaiser to the lavish branch. I created a pink rose using a Sizzix die. To top this card off I added a thin blue grosgrain ribbon tied in a knot.
This is the inside of my card using a spellbinder die set.
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog

Lori, your colors are so soft and sweet, a variation of the primary color palate. Love that plaid background. You put in just the right balance of all the elements to make this such a pleasing card. Good work on this week's challenge! :o)
