The Recipe:
I thought it would be fun to put a few things I knew a Deborah and what she liked along with a few birthday wishes on it...she loves brown, pink, dragonflies, and flowers...I used a pink cardstock as my base of the card and I used the fave things she liked in my card most as embellishments and I used brown ink pad to ink it up a then the brown card stock I used my 1 inch puncher and punched 6 of em' and then the choc ribbon and stapled the few to make it different instead of a bow and voila! Happy Birthday!

Hope you like the card and be inspired to make someone's birthday special!! :)
