Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #17

I decided I needed some inspiration to come up with a birthday card for a sweet friend of mine. I thought that the colors from Dawn's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge (click on the picture above to go directly to the page that provides links to more wonderful cards) would make a great birthday card - the aqua and red make the colors so bright and "cheery!"

The middle present there and the "Happy Birthday" are applied with dimensional adhesive so they "pop-out" a little from the card. I LOVE the ribbon that I used on this card - lacy and feminine! I am not completely happy with the way that the card turned out, but that might be because it's a little late and I'm tired!

Exciting news in my life right now - I am actually not working like a mad woman this week! Yay! I worked last Sunday unexpectedly because the other pharmacist's dad at my store ended up going to the ER and she wanted to go be with him...but she offered to repay me by working my Sunday for me (this NEVER happens to me)!!!

So I have Sun, Mon, and Tues off this week as well as my normal 3 day weekend of Fri, Sat, and Sun! YAY!

Sunday I am going to spend the day with a very precious family to me who are home from their missionary lives in Honduras for a few months. I'm not sure what Monday and Tuesday have in store for me just yet. Then on Friday I am going to be able to spend some time with 3 other amazing women whom I have known for a very long time - I can't wait! I hope that you all get some kind of exciting and fun news this week as well!

Supplies for this card:
Cardstock: Kraft, aqua, and white colored
Ink: Lipstick Red and Blue Lagoon from Colorbox
Ribbon: Chocolate Brown Lace Ribbon from Jo-Ann's
Stamps: Happy Birthday 01 and Stripped Present from Stampabilities
Punch: A Scalloped edge punch that I found on Clearance at Target for about $3 - not sure of brand or what it's called exactly (I threw the packaging away already)
