Bright Birthday Wishes

Well, hello again! It's been a very nice day today so far. The sun is out now and it's so cheery...and I need that right now - things lately have been too gloomy and blah - so some sunshine is very welcomed!
I decided to give the Sweet Stampin Sketch Challenge a go today and I wanted to use the nice bright, bold colors from Stampin Royalty again. I think my card turned out "ok." I'm not sure what else I could have done to it - maybe a knot in the ribbon on the bottom - but is what it is!! And it's bright and cheery! LOL...

...let me know what you think! I used the cute set "Happy Moments" from the Sale-a-Bration flyer and a lot of embossing folders.
I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far - I am. It's nice and quiet here - kids are busy doing stuff and I've been doing various jobs around the house and then coming back into my stamp room to CREATE. I am going to go and brew up some fresh, cinnamon-infused Starbuck's coffee (I just put cinnamon in the coffee grounds *wink*) and switch the laundry around and think of something for supper. DH will be home a bit later tonight so I need to get some stuff done around here so I can sit and visit with him...or maybe make more cards HEE HEE....
Have a good one!
