Mix-It-UP! Monday

Happy Monday My Blogger Friends!
Today is Mix It UP! Monday and I have an upgraded version of the card I shared with you yesterday.  I used the exact same product that was used to create yesterday's card ....... but added a couple additional products (found in both the 2017 Occasions Catalog and the 2016-2017 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog) to bring this card up to the next stamping level.
Here is my Spot Light Sunday card on the LEFT......
And today's Mix-It-UP! Monday card on the RIGHT...... 
For today's card I made the SLIGHTEST UPGRADES......
But those upgrades made for a DYNAMIC statement.
I started out by embossing my 'Big on Birthdays' sentiment with Black Embossing Powder.  Just love how much SHINE was created by doing this step to my sentiment.
I kept the two inch 'Urban Underground DSP' panel down the left hand side of my card ........ But I added a Black circle with a 'Lace Doilies' on top of that Black Circle and then attached that piece to my birthday sentiment panel.
I topped off my 'Urban Underground' DSP panel with a piece of the new 'Very Vanilla 1/4" Satin Ribbon' and added a Black Baker's Twine bow to the top of the ribbon.
I just love how this layout turned out.  And even though I was going for a masculine feel for my card, just by adding the doilies and ribbon to this card I was able to use it for both male and female birthdays. 
So there you go my friends......I have to say.......
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share a 3-D Tuesday creation with you ...... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!
