Happy b-day card with challenge #2 sketch

I need a card for one of my employees.  And I decided to make one off camera.  OMG it's been FOREVER since I have done that.  And I have decided to use a stamp that I haven't used EVER.  I just ADORE Gorjuss stamps and I haven't been using mine.... I just don't.  But I love them that IS the reason I got them in the 1st place. So it was time to do that and while watching Courtney from Little Raven Ink (on Patreon, I love supporting artists that I like).  I just played with some alcool inks which have not been used either.... and made a really fun background. The other papers used on this card are from a card folder and the other from a very old paper pack that can't identify for you. I really hope that you like my new card for you.  I followed the sketch that you can find on my sketch/layout challenge .  It's been a very long time since I have posted just on my blog.  I hope you like it but most of all I sure hope my employee likes it!!!! One thing as
