Super Simple Birthday Card...start to finish in less than 15 minutes

Is it Monday already??? Have to say being home is priceless but off to NYC for yet another business trip. My timing is all messed up still--up all night tired all day--but sleeping in my own bed--no matter what time it is, it's still a wonderful thing.

So here is a very simple card that took 15 minutes to make--the card is a standard 5.5*5.5 square. I took two bits of patterned paper and cut a 1/2" off each side inked the edges and layered them up. I took a left over bit of black ribbon for the bow. I used one of the MANY new ek success punches for my title note, inked the edges and stamped the "Birthday Wishes" using versa mark and silver heat embossing poweder. I really loved the deep rich colors.
