Sweet Birthday Wishes from Card Cupids & Fresh Brewed Designs

Can you believe it's already August! I know, I say that every month! Today begins a new two-week challenge at Card Cupids, sponsored by Fresh Brewed Designs. We're looking for Birthday cards for Kids or Shades of Blue.

My card sorta uses both themes, and features FBD's "Daydreaming" digi stamp:

For the image border, I used a modified version of the Ribbon Frame Technique and one of my favorite ribbons.

The Candy Jar & Birthday Sentiment stamps are from the Sweet Treat collection by Beth Gunnell for Quick Cards Made Easy Magazine, as are the papers. The "100% Sweet" sentiment stamped inside the thought-bubble is from a Hampton Art set.
