Happy Birthday

I have so much treasured "scrap" paper! Decided to put them to good use. What do you think? My favorite colors to work with right now are orange and bright green. I needed some birthday cards, so that was my inspiration.

Materials used:
DP: MME paper pad ( I love using these pads because  most of the papers coordinate.)
CS: Georgia Pacific
Stamps: Close to My Heart
Ribbon and Lace: From my treasured stash:)

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Thursday Challenges:
Crafty Girls Challenges: Anything Goes
Little Miss Muffet Challenges: Anything Goes
Milk Coffee Challenges: Birthdays
Through the Purple Haze Challenge: Happy Birthday
Wednesday Challenges:
The Crafter's Cafe: Birthday
Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge: Anything Goes
Simon Says Challenge: Spots and Dots
The Sisterhood of Crafters: Happy Birthday
