Birthday Card Using Leftovers

I've been making the layouts from my Miracle kit (I'll post those later), and I had some leftovers I thought I would use for cards. Then today's Mojo Monday popped up, and the sketch was perfect! I changed only one thing: I put my sentiment inside a shaped frame, rather than having a separate shape and sentiment.

Here's my card:
I made a card base with some green CS from my stash. The rest of the papers, MyStickease, button, brads, and "irresistible" chipboard frame are all leftover pieces from the Miracle kit.

I also used natural color twill tape, and colored it using a sponge and Topiary ink pad. I distressed the edges of the papers using Bamboo ink and a sponge dauber. The border punch is from Stampin' Up! The sentiment stamp is from a discontinued
CTMH set.

This week's Mojo Monday sketch is:
