Stamping 411 Sketch/Happy Birthday

Good Saturday Morning everyone!  I have been up for some time just working on this card!  I wanted it done and posted by the time I left to go spend the day with my mom who lives about 70 miles from me.  Anyway, as you can see by the title this is for the Stamping 411 sketch challenge this week and you can find the sketch here!  It was a bit out of my comfort zone this time, but I finally pulled it together. 

This is a side view of the card!  And for the color on the embossing part of the card, I used sponge daubers dampened a little in water and then in the Poppy Parade classic ink and lightly sponged onto the lines of the embossing.

A close up showing how the ribbon goes through where I punched the hole and stamped the image underneath.  Kind of tricky here, but I did get it straight. lol  Not the norm for me!

And of course as always here is the inside of the card!
