Just Us Girls Color Challenge #55 Happy Birthday

Hello There~
I am participating in a new challenge
(for me),  over at Just Us Girls 
but when I saw this elegant
color combo I wanted to participate.
It's black, cream, and kraft.
How can you go wrong with such
elegance I ask?
I have been hoarding this paper for months, but
I decided to finally use it! I just LURVE it!
It's by Jillibean Soup called Black Macaroni. 
I now wish I would have bought more!
We are so limited in Hawaii with supplies.
I thought an elegant card called for 
an elegant stamp, so I used my
I added some black Rhinestones to the Crest.
I created a ruffled ribbon at the bottom
of course adding rhinestones for 
a nice finishing touch!
I stamped a running Happy Birthday border across my
card panel and popped my crest up with foam mounting tape.
Thanks for taking a peek today!
Warm aloha!
~Tammy~
Edited Note: Many have asked how to make
this ruffled ribbon. I learned this technique a
long time ago using sticy strip and "scrunch" style
but I am going to share a link with you that
Paulina, at DeNami Designs, shared with me
that is much easier. Please check it out here!
Nami makes it look so easy.

Girly, this is simply gorgeous. The patterned paper goes with the Solid Decorative Crest so well. And then that ruffled ribbon....did you see Nami's video on it? It looks exactly like hers! Love how you added the rhinestones; it's very DeNami looking. ;)

Okay, I need to stop or else I could go on and on. Let's just say, this is my favorite Tammy card to date!
