Happy Birthday

Hello and happy Monday. :-) unlike my other cards recently i used bright colors this time to match the colors from the Raspberry Ribbon kit for February. I thought it is the a nice match for a bright and happy Birthday card. Some thoughts of this card - to the left where Tilda is are frilly girly ribbons and on the right with Edwin is a more "maskulin" embellishment. I always make sure when i use pins that they are hidden inside the paper or like here one you can see the end but it is in an ancle pushed it so it is save to touch the card!!! On this card i masked Tilda and stamped than Edwin. I usually cut my images out because i do like the 3-Dimensional look. Masking is not something i enjoy to do :-) but iam happy with the result on this card. (don't ask how many times i started over lol)
For the sentiment i used a retired Level 2 Set that is called "All about Occasions" I have used that one quite often on my cards because the words are a perfect match to use with the Word Window Punch. I do have one extra set which i want to list on Ebay later today.
Stamps: Tilda and Edwin are from the Shabby Chic Collection . Sentiment: Stampin up "All about Occasions"
Embellishments: Ribbons: Raspberry Ribbon Kit, Pins from my own share, Making Memories
CS/DP: Stampin up, DP i can not remember it was from the stash
