A fun birthday card

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a great Saturday and enjoying World Card Making Day.  Lots of fun and prizes for doing what we love making cards.
I have a simple but colorful card to share with you today.
I cut the ribbon/banner using the CTMH Artiste cartridge and Cricut Craft Room so that I could make the red shadow for them.  I like to shadow things whenever I can as I think it makes it pop more.  The background yellow I embossed using my Cuttlebug and a new folder I got.
I have a great-grandson turning 4 in November and I think I will use this for his birthday card.
I finished the inside by just matting some of the colors from the front.  I will stamp a sentiment later.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, I love to read your comments and hope you come back again soon.
