Happy Birthday, a bit snarky!

It is a Tuesday and time for my A Card A Week Challenge!  This is my first card for May, with the new theme of embossing.  I will use my Big Shot to emboss or grab my heat tool to do that kind of embossing--or maybe both on a future card!   

I went with a brand new set of stamps that I recently bought from Cracker Box-So Suzy Stamps.  They have some fun pairs of sentiment stamps that are a bit snarky for wishing someone a Happy Birthday.  This one just made me smile, so it jumped in my cart!  I inked it up both sentiments with Stampin' Up Bermuda Bay and layered with some bright beachy colors.   The embossing folder I used is from Sizzix called Birthday 5 and features all kinds of party hats!   I added a strip of Stampin' Up's Highland Heather Satin Ribbon.  I think it is a pretty birthday card and I know many of my friends would laugh out loud if they received it!

Here is the inside of my card with a strip of washi tape:

I like the look of this card and hope you do too.  I hope you will stop back next week to see what the next embossed card looks like!
