Daisy Birthday Wishes

Happy Friday! I have an easy 10-minute card to share today. The best part about this creation? I used my hoarded SU ribbon! (...and buttons...and stamps...)

You know the sets of 5 types of ribbon Stampin UP sells? Well, I had NO IDEA what to do with the 1 1/2" ribbon. I used it as the inspiration for the card, thus I wanted to keep it simple to showcase it.

I used the direct marker to stamp technique and finished it off with some clear embossing powder for a little pop. :)

For those of you who Pinterest, my dear friend, Sami, added a little Pin It to my blog! Isn't it cute? And how lucky am I to have a friend who helps me with all that HTML gibberish?! ;) Thanks again, Sami!!

I would love to enter this card in the following challenges:
-Crafty Ann's: Clean and Simple
-Prairie Fairy Fridays: Heat Embossing
-Inspire Me Fridays: Anything Goes

I like how you used the ribbon. One of my favorite sets to use especially for a quick card that doesn't require any coloring.
