Birthday Card with Many Ribbons Card

Created this Birthday Card trying the technique of using ink on white cardstock of a die shape with the die still attached that then gives you a white border. Have seen others do this including Susan of Expression Avenue and you can see her blog if you click here. I'm not recalling or finding the Poodle card she created that she showed me recently using this technique. I do not think I've tried this before. I taped the die to the cardstock to make it more secure when using the Tim Holtz Distress Ink tumbled glass for blue sky on white layer on Kraft cardstock base.

Used a Die-namics Cloud Trio die I had selected from a prize win. I do not think I've used it before. Cut ribbon & added to the clouds. I had seen a card on the Internet with ribbon strips from clouds but I did not write down who it was by. If anyone knows please let me know so I can give credit for the inspiration and list the link.
