Gift Birthday Card

One of my co-worker's birthday was coming up and I decided to try my new found hobby and create a handmade card for her instead of sending her the usual store bought ones. I'm sort of already getting the hang of it, learning some new tips and tricks on stamping, inking edges and making tags. I used mostly scrap paper from my scrapbooking projects. I inked the edges of the gift body, and embossed the 'ribbon' part just to add some texture to the card. After that I stamped "Happy Birthday to You" on the gift tag to make this card look as realistic as a gift box. I used some orange (same shade as the ink edge) twine to tie that together.
