Keep it Simple Sunday

Hey...that's a pretty catchy title...maybe I need to come up with a challenge to post a simple card each Sunday evening. Well...it's at least going to work for this week! :-)
Thanks to Stampin' Up! for providing this layout in a recent demonstrator magazine, I was able to create a fast and easy birthday card from my husband's Grandmother, who will be turning 90 next week! All of the products used on this card are from Stampin' Up!. One of my favorite parts of the card is the navy ink on the white cardstock. This probably isn't something I'd consider trying but again, thanks to an SU! publication, I saw something similar and decided to give it a try. The look is so clean and crisp...just love it and I will have to use this style on another card sometime! The "birthday wishes" and border was embossed with white embossing powder to help it pop off of the kiwi kiss paper, isn't that a great green! And the orange ribbon provides a nice contrasting color...love mixing bold colors together! The one element that you can't see, which kind of bums me out is that the background of the card has been stamped with polka dots...a blue ink on blue paper thing so that may be a reason it's hard to see in the photo... Hoping "Gram" likes her card and enjoys her 90th birthday!! And hope you enjoy your Sunday evening!
