This is a bit different from some of the cards I do for birthdays but I wanted a card that might appeal to all genders and ages.
Hey, I figured all ages and genders like balloons and birthday cakes. And, I used both a stamped and embossed background. The stamping is with the quotation bubbles from the Gina K. Designs Let's Talk set by Debbie Corbari. I chose that because the Cuttlebug Happy Birthday embossing folder has oodles of different birthday sentiments all over it so I thought they might work well together. But I am still not sure about that, so I will let all of you be the judge. LOL
I chose the Gina K. Designs ink colors of Sweet Mango, Blue Raspberry and Cranberry Tart for the inks and card stock. I also used some Gina K. Designs Black ink and some Gina K. Designs Ivory card stock.
I colored the stamped images of the cake with the Gina K. Designs inks and the balloons were colored with Distress Ink markers which seemed to match fairly well. By adding lots of the colored layers I hoped to achieve a more bright and cheery card design. I also added some rhinestone flower gems which were almost the same as on the embossing folder. I colored each little flower and some I placed a rhinestone over it. The ribbon was added for more embellishment.
I am going to enter this in the Mix It Up Monday challenge at Stamp TV. For this week's challenge we were asked to use both stamping and embossing on our card.
Take care all and thanks for stopping in and commenting. I appreciate each and every one.

Verna, I LOVE this card! I think the white background with the birthday dry embossed words is what really caught my attention. The dark red really presents some drama around the cake and balloons! Delightful, fun, and so birth-day-ish! LOL Great card. hugs, de
