Only a kid once

Hi everyone...I made a card this afternoon using a stamp I got years ago and have only used once. It just lends itself to the monochrome theme I think, but typically I can't find any monochrome challenges this week! 
 The card is 13.5 x 13.5cms and I've layered up with black card and backing paper from the Charcoal Prints 8x8 pack by dovecraft. I've cut a contrasting paper from the same pack using the Blossom spellbinders die. The image is coloured with promarkers and cut with Spellbinders label three.
I've added black and white stripy ribbon and made a bow using black lace. The wooden flower has been in my stash for years. I've added a white liner and stamped Happy Birthday in it. I hope you like her, we can all think of someone who this would be suitable for I'm sure...Apologies for the photos, couldn't quite get the lighting right today for some reason.

I would like to enter this in the following :-

Happy crafting
Helen xx
