Birthday Card ~ Red & Black (post #3)

Black and red are my husband's favorite colors so I seem to be drawn to them when I want to make a gender neutral card birthday card.
I just love this sentiment.
The font... the size... it just seems to be the perfect go to stamp for cards.
I picked up this arrow embossing folder at Hobby Lobby last summer while on vacation.
{We do not have one around here. Nearest one is a 2-1/2 hr drive. pout, pout}
I love its whimsy feel and think it is great for lots of backgrounds.
I hand cut {well paper cut anyway} the frames and tag to go with the sentiment.
To finish it off I added a little ribbon and adhered the tag with foam tape.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Card front embossed using the Paper Studio A2-Arrows folder.
*Sentiment from Verve Stamps called Birthday To You Plain Jane.
*Tag and frames hand cut to fit sentiment.
*Memento tuxedo Black stamps pad.
*Red ribbon from Celebrate It 360 (Michaels)
*Black ribbon from Offray (Joanns)

May your day always be filled with love.
