Ribbon and lace

Funky Fairy's challenge #34 is to use ribbon and lace on your cards, well the ribbon was no problem as I usually always put ribbon on my cards, but after rummaging through my ribbons bag the only bit of lace I had was brown. Now I have nothing against brown when used in the right place but for the whole card to be based around this brown bit of lace I was quite uninspired. Anyway I decided to use it instead of buying more and set about trying to find something to make it less dull. I found this gorgeous paper in the Funky Fairy's Blue Xmas download which i thought would work a treat with the brown lace.
The swirl is hand cut as are the base flowers, I then added primas on top of them. The letters are brown chipboard ones from a Brenda Pinnick scrapbook kit covered in brown sugar coating from doodlebug. The frame the text is in is also from the Blue Xmas kit from Funky Fairy's and the birthday text is from a stamp set (but I threw the packaging away so cant remember the manufacturer). The ribbon is from chatterbox.
Thanks for looking, as always comments are welcome.
