Dynamic Duos #51 & Seize the Birthday #16

Well, I just had to come back and link up a card to this week's Dynamic Duos challenge, as a player this time :o)  The colour combo is a very pretty yellow & blue duo, so I pulled out my October Afternoon Farmhouse papers and I used the current Seize the Birthday sketch.  It's not my favourite card ever, it's either over or under embellished - I can't decide which??  When I took away the flowers, it looked like it needed something... and when I tried to add a different ribbon or some twine, it just looked like too much!  I took that to mean that it was time to walk away :o)  Here it is:
 
Patterned papers are Farmhouse, October Afternoon; Cardstock is Slate & Colonial White, CTMH; Stamp set is Borderline, Verve; Mini Vintage Oval die, Verve; Tilda Swirl die, Memory Box; Inks are Honey, Slate & Black, CTMH; Slate polka dot ribbon, CTMH.
