Birthday Card For A Friend

Happy Wednesday! I hope everyone is enjoying their week. :) Today I thought I'd share with you a birthday card I made. Most of the time my creations are made for fun and to share with you on here, but this week a coworker of mine has an upcoming birthday and I wanted to make a card for her. My dad's birthday is also on the same day, so I'll be making and posting a card for him within the next couple of days as well.

From a distance the ribbon looks kind of odd, almost like "Why would you choose to place that ribbon on this card, it doesn't match." If you look closer, though, you can see that the ribbon contains all of the colors used on the card, and also has sort of a floral pattern to it, which is why the pink and blue shapes are embossed with a floral pattern.

These two pictures focus on the embossing. I used the Floral Fantasy embossing folder with my Cuttlebug.

For the centerpiece, I used both the gift die cut and also the asterisk die cuts. 

These two pictures show the inside of the card. I made sure to use all of the same colors that were used on the front of the card.

I almost forgot to mention that I won my first blog candy giveaway! :) Thanks so much to Sherry at Up Or Down They're Beautiful for the goodies, I can't wait to receive them! Please stop by her blog if you have the chance, her creations are wonderful and she is so sweet.
