Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge # 39

The Crafts4eternity Recipe Challenge blog this week have given a recipe as follows:
1) use the sketch
2) use a nursery rhyme theme
3) add a charm

I used mainly card stock which I've had for a while, as these blue colours went so well with the blue which I used on the image. The image was found on the PC, and depicts Incy Wincy Spider, thus following the Nursery Rhyme theme.
I added some gems from my craft box, and I cut a fleur de lys  pattern out of silver card (though in the picture it does not look silver at all, I think it must of reflected back at something)  and used it upside down to create the pattern at the top. The very top piece of card, I embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder.
I found a metal charm depicting a birthday cake and the words happy birthday and I stuck this onto the top part of the card with a foam pad so it stood out a little from the card.
The stripy pattern at the bottom of the card was created using some sticky ribbon which I found in my ribbon stash.
I hope you like my card. 
My photo of the card I made and the image given, are below.
