Wonderful birthday

Well it was a very productive afternoon and I was happy with the way my 2 cards turned out.  This is the first one and it is based on the sketch from Card Positioning Systems #235.  I have made it an easel card for Paper Playtime, made it into a birthday card for Top Tip Tuesday and have incorporated a ribbon as one of the main features for Party Time Tuesdays.
 
here is a close up of this rather loud and funky ribbon from Francheville.  I have also tackled some felt roses using the MFT mini rolled roses dies - I have had these for a while and I tend to struggle when rolling them - I find that it tends to become very loose over time - I secure the bottom but I can see that as you move it about a bit it tends to loosen  - what am I doing wrong?
 
materials - AC canary cardstock; Lily Bee 'this & that' papers; MFT polka dot greetings die and stamp set; Colorbox chalk chestnut roan, Versa Color camellia ink; MFT mini rolled roses; Franchevill Natalia trim; Kaisercraft rhinestones; felt.
Thanks for your looking and your kind comments.
