Personal Challenge Week 7

For the Just A Scrappin' St. Patrick's day challenge Click Here
Hello My friends!
 This is my card for week 7 of my personal challenge going on with Kellie and it was my turn to create our challenge. I decided that our challenge would be to create a window card using some embossing and ribbon. So here is my card.....
My card base is 5 1/2 X 5 1/2 and I used some vintage cream cardstock by Papertrey Ink for my card base. The bright and fun patterned paper is from a 6x6 paper pad by Fancy Pants called "To the Moon". I just loved this paper. I used a small inset metal die (CCD-007) by Art Gone Wild to make my window. I used my copic markers, B24, YG06 and Y09 to make the fun confetti around the window opening.
The stamp set that I used on the inside of my card is called "Birthday View" which coordinates with the window die. I stamped that in momento tuxedo black ink onto some yellow paper
(also from the 6x6 "To the Moon" paper pad) and then embossed it using my houndstooth embossing folder. I used more of that same yellow paper to make a banner ribbon which I added some Glittered gumdrops by 3 Birds that I purchased on HSN. The sentiment, "make a wish" is from Lawn Fawn's Critter Ever After stamp set which was also stamped using my momento tuxedo black ink. I pleated the banner ribbon and popped it up on foam tape for dimension. To finish off the card, I added some bright orange ribbon that I had in my stash to bring out the color orange in the patterned paper. Overall, I am pleased with how this turned out.
Here is another picture of the card

I am submitting this card in Tara's Craftin Desert Diva's Linky Party, come check it out! Also be sure to stop by Kellie's blog to see her wonderful take on our challenge. Stay tuned for this week's challenge, "Use stencils and stamps". This will be a fun one and I sure hope some of you take the challenge and join us!
