OWH MWT Happy Birthday card challenge

This week's Midweek Throwdown on Operation Write Home's blog is to make birthday cards for our heroes to send home to their family and friends. I'm currently making cards from Echo Park's Love Story 6x6, so my card is definitely feminine. This was the first time playing with the border die cut from My Favorite Things. I thought it would be pretty to weave some May Arts wrinkle ribbon through the holes. I like how it turned out.
