Stampin' Up Another Great Year Birthday card

It seems this time of year I have so many friends and family members that are having birthdays!! Wow! So I wanted to share this birthday card I made using 'Another Great Year' stamp set. This is a pretty cool little stamp set, I must say. I can see lots of possibilities, and  goodness knows I need to get busy!!  :) I made this card using the sketch this week at Create with Connie and Mary (CCMC 297),  when I saw it my wheels were turning! :)


So here's my card

I really like how the colors 'pop' here! Pink and black is one of my favorite color combinations. I added the Silver Embossing and the Silver ribbon to really add some pizazz.

I wanted to show you what the card looks like from this angle, the button really doesn't add too much bulk. The bow really makes this card! I know my sister in law will love it!!

Isn't that cute? 

Items used:
Stamps: Another Great Year
Paper: Basic Black cardstock, Whisper White cardstock, Quatrefancy Specialty  Designer Series Paper
Accessories: Silver Ribbon, Silver Embossing powder, In color Boutique Details

Have a great day!!
