Happy Card - Happy Day!

So it's almost Christmas - but that doesn't mean Birthdays stop - right!  So ... I love this color combo - Daffodil Delight, Basic Basic Black and Smoky Slate - how elegant is that.  This is pretty much of a case from a card I saw on Pinterest; and we made it at my October Cards class - that focused on birthdays.  It has some fun elements with the Yellow ribbon, and the gray gingham ribbon - as well as the black gems for accents.  Yellow is my favorite color - and this card speaks to me.
It uses several elements from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set on pg 77 of the 2017-18 Annual catalog.  I also love the way we layered the "Happy Birthday" sentiment, by stamping it and punching it out with the new Pretty Label punch, then punching a layer of black, cutting it in half horizontally and adding it to the back of the of the top layer to give it a border.  Then popping that entire thing up on dimensionals.
Besides the envelope - we added a little cluster of flowers to the inside of the card also to give it a fun finish.   Happy card - for a happy day!  ~Maureen
