Here's another birthday card. This one was inspired by Debbie's. I didn't have any fancy patterned paper, so I made mine the messy way- Polished Stone . I used Pumpkin Pie and Close to Cocoa reinkers, as well as some gold reinker. Before sealing it, I stamped various leaves from Autumn Leaf Prints in Cocoa, then again in Chocolate. The greeting was done with some nestabilities. I punched the horizontal slot on either side of the tag, overlapping it a bit to make room for the 5/8" ribbon. I layered some May Arts ribbon over the cappuccino grosgrain to add a bit more interest. I thought about adding more to the card, but it's intended for a male cousin, so I figure less seems to be more with guy recipients.
