"Elegant" Birthday

Our friend Sara is having a party for her 40th birthday - the theme being Elegant.
I wanted to try and make her a birthday card that would be in keeping with this theme.

The stamp I used was Uptown Girl Audrey Loves Makeup from Stamping Bella.  The image was coloured using Pro-Lite Markers.

Papers are from Docrafts Papermania Capsule Collection - Midnight Blush and Tim Holtz Idea-ology.  I've also used some plain red and black card.
The ribbons are from Lili of the Valley Little Bags of Ribbons - Red and I also some black satin ribbon from Hobby Craft
I made the birthday sentiment from some Hobby Craft Alphabet Stickers and the 40 from some Glitter Alphabet Stickers.  I finished off with some self adhesive gems.
To help me create this card I used sketch 65 from Papertake Weekly.

I've entered this card into
Papertake Weeklys Challenge - Sketchie Free For All
Divas By Design Challenge - Happy Birthday
