Button Birthday

I feel compelled again to show you the entire journey of making a card. Most of the time one good card takes at least 3 tries, sometimes more. My stamping room is normally filled with bits and pieces of cards I've made and torn apart and don't know what to do with.  This one only took 2 tries! Yay!!!
Here's Take One:

And Take Two:
Isn't it amazing what a layer can do? The whole card pops with color now and its just that much cuter. Also, adding this much card stock costs very little and doesn't harm the card's ability to fit in an envelope either. I say when in doubt, add a layer or two!

And how cute are those buttons?

I used:
* Button Button and On Your Birthday stamp sets
* Rose Red and Crumb Cake ink
* Rose Red, Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White card stocks
* Old Olive 5/8" ribbon
* Sweet Buttons embosslit
* Two Tags Die
