Sweet Birthday

Here's a card for a sweet birthday girl.  I went pretty basic today, except for the bow that I learned to tie with my fingers via a tutorial by Ginny at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I usually break out the mini Bowdabra, but this double bow looks so much more natural.  Since the grossgrain ribbon here has a pattern on one side, I just gave it a little twist while wrapping it.  Easy!

I used this sketch from Seems a Little Sketchy for my card:

And the color pallette from Chocolate, Coffee & Cards made me a little hungry:
