Late Birthday Wishes

While surfing the web over the weekend, I found alot of inspiration from some of the folks that I follow.  And I wanted to try an interesting color combo.  I found this decorators photo on Little Princess Cards blog. The colors are pink, yellow, and black.  I know, this color combo sounds far fetched.  But, I was determined to see if I could get it to work.  So, I rummaged threw my scrap stash.  I located some pink and yellow ribbons.  And set out to work.  I needed a bit more direction, so I went to a sketch challenge blog @ Simple Desire to scrap.  This challenge blog is in Russian, so you will need to translate the blog if you are interested in reading it.  (This blog has a translate button at the top of the page.)
Here is the original inspiration photo:
 Here is the sketch:
  
And here is my card:

When I first saw this color combo, my first thought was, 'are you kidding?'.  But I really like it!  Like I said this card is made from scraps.  I believe the large yellow polka dot paper is a Cosmo Cricket paper.  The pink script is from Sceinic Route, the hounds tooth pattern paper is from Authentique, the cream text paper is from Stampin' Up!, as well as the yellow small polka dot paper and the glitter paper.  The pink flourish paper I have no idea.  The yellow ribbon is from Stampin' Up! and the pink small polka dot ribbon is from Paper Trey Ink.  The ribbon slide is from Paper Studio.  The stamps (Birthday Wishes, and friends) are from Stampin' Up!  So is the die to cut the cardstock scallop circle.  The flower comes from Kaiser.  The card base is Crumb Cake, from Stampin' Up!.  
Thank you for looking! and I hope this new year is off to a great start for you!
