Teal & Purple Birthday card.

Hi everyone, time to catch up on posting on my blog.  Things have been crazy around here, so the little time I had I crafted but did not get around to posting my cards.
This one I made for my Mom who is 82 today!  She lives in Colorado but come here to spend the Winter we us each year, so it hard to make a card for her as she is always coming in my room and asking what I am working on.  So I always have two things going and hide hers and pull out the other one.
She loves purple and teal so here is what I came up with.
I am rather new at using the "crinkle ribbon" so I am still playing around and learning, but all and all I like the way this came out.  It is just be learning that every thing does not have to perfect and neat, in this case messy is good, :).  The happy birthday is from the MS Elegant Birthday Cake cartridge as is the label.

I printed the sentiment on of white pearl paper and cut it using a Spellbinder die.

I finished the inside simply with the same paper theme as the front.

Thanks for stopping by and here are some challenges I will enter this card in.
