Happy Birthday Cute Card Thursday!

2 posts and 2 challenge cards in one day! I'm on a roll today lol.

It's Cute Card Thursdays birthday this week and the challenge is to make a card for a celebration following their sketch.
I haven't made a card with a tag on it for ages so this was a nice change.

I couldn't take a good enough photo of this card because it's getting dark so I've had to scan it and it doesn't really show the papers or flowers very well. I will take a pic in the morning if I remember.
I've used my Twinkle Toes House Mouse stamp again and coloured it with copics, but some of my copics are running out although I have only had them for a few weeks and one of them that is dry is my blender pen so I couldn't really do any blending on this image but I tried my best without it a and with only one colour of brown because the rest don't work now either.
I have the ciao markers and thought they would last a bit longer. If anyone else has these markers maybe you could let me know if you have the same problem?
Anyway back to the card. All the papers I used are from Paper Adventures and everything else is from my stash.
I really really need a border punch because I don't have any and it is a nightmare to cut scallops or pretty borders because I have to do it by hand :( If you really feel sorry for me, you can send me one, my address is ............... just kidding but I REALLY want one lol.
I cut the scallops then punched holes all the way along and threaded ribbon through the holes. I wasn't intending doing this but the idea just came to me half way through making the card so I just went with it. I am so in the cardmaking zone today and I think my mojo has finally came out of hibernation, yay, because I just have so many idea buzzing around in my head.
I might even get some more done tonight when the kids go to bed!
Thanks for looking today.
Hugs Lora x
