Happy Birthday Ribbon Card

Happy Wednesday My Blogger Friends!
Countdown Till We See The Grandkids - 33 Days!
Today I have another birthday card to share with you ............ Let's jump right in....
This card was created using the new "Blue Ribbon" stamp set and several circle layers.  I used Chocolate Chip ink to stamp my ribbon image onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock ...... and then used my paper snips to cut around the entire image and added some dimensionals to the back of the ribbon to pop it up off my card. 
I used two layers of circles (1-1/4" and 1-3/8") for the center of my ribbon image and I added Crystal Effects to my top circle image for a little added WOW FACTOR.  It made the HAPPY BIRTHDAY message very glossy and was perfect for the center of this ribbon banner.
I used the Polka Dot Parade DSP (Daffodil Delight) for my DSP and added an Edgelits Large Scallop Die to the bottom and top of my card.  I also added a piece of Chocolate Chip Stitched Ribbon across the center of my card and before I tied the knot to my ribbon a layered a very small piece of Daffodil Delight stitched ribbon to the center and finished knotting up my ribbon.  Turned out to be the PERFECT addition to this SUPER FUN birthday card.
I will get busy creating more of these cards for the MANY male birthdays I have coming up in August.  I think this card will end up being a favorite "GO TO BIRTHDAY" card for the guys on my birthday card list.

Thanks for joining me today - I'll be back tomorrow to share another new card creation with you - Hope you can come back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!
