1st Birthday card for a boy

Evening everyone, Dont post for weeks and now I have 2 in one day lol.
I have been asked for a 1st Birthday card for a boy so wanted to make something a bit special. I decided that I wanted to make a ribbon rosette.
 I used my Xcut nested circles and cut the 2 largest circles out in blue and yellow card stock I then used my Cricut cartridge 'Mathea Stewarts birthday cake art' to cut a 4 1/2 inch scalloped circle out for the other 2 to nest into. I used Pink Gems 'Oh Boy' baby decoupage sheet and cut out the lil boy to sit inside my circles. 
To create the ribbon rosette I cut up peices of ribbon approx 7cm in length and started attaching them to the back of the scalloped circle. I then cut to longer peices to make the ribbons at the bottom. I stuck this altogether to get the desgin featured. I am really pleased with it.
I also used backing papers from Pink Gems Desgins. I used the same cricut cart to cut out the letters and the number 1. 
I used Crafters Companion centura pearl A3 card for my card base and the CC enveloplus board to create a matching envelop using the 16x16 specialist card.
 Here is a close up of my ribbon rosette.

I hope you like it.
