Fresh Brewed Designs, "Gift Girl" Birthday card


It's Wednesday, and that means that it's time for a new challenge at
This week the challenge is "Keep It Simple" 
One paper and one embellishment.
For my card I used the very lovely and
most recently released stamp,
"GIFT GIRL" from Fresh Brewed Designs! I may have cheated a little here!  I used lace and a ribbon. 
Well, after I added the pretty lace, I just had to add the ribbon!  Then when I realized that I should
have only added one or the other, it was IMPOSSIBLE for me to remove one of them!
SIGH...........So here it is!

I believe that I paper pieced her skirt also.......
It WAS SIMPLE though! 
 I just stamped a scrap of paper and cut it out!
I colored "Gift Girl" with my copic markers
The dp is Martha Stewart
The sentiment is LOTV
The ribbon and circle punches are SU

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges
