Happy Birthday card for Craft-Dee Bowz inspiration post

Hi all Tracy here ...
It is time for my inspiration post for January .I wanted to make an elegant clean card for a change ,my cards usually have oodles of embellishments on them and it was nice to do something a little different . I used my new sentiment and border stamps  from Phil Martin at creative expressions. I used a blue distress ink [Broken china] to stamp with to match the pretty ribbons from this months MPP pack from Donna. The flowers are made using the Arianna blooms heartfelt creations stamp and die set which I stamped using the same ink .
I also used Sue Wilsons pierced square dies to create the frame around the sentiment and matched some blue cardstock I had from create and craft UK .
The stunning bow was created using my trusty Craft-dee Bowz bow maker., it is my go to bow making tool .It makes perfect bows every time with no effort at all. I added a gem centre to the bow to make it sparkle.
