Birthday Girl's Birthday Card

Hello Hello
I wonder...often, where exactly does the time go? I have been super busy around here lately and haven't even had a moments thought other than getting things ready for December. 
Good News is: My December Daily Album is ready to rock and roll (hopefully be sharing that next week) and I almost have the Advent Calendar ready for putting up this weekend (will be sharing that soon too).
Now to make my Christmas cards, haven't done these in a few years and I'm actually looking forward to it. The idea I have this year will be super simple (I hope) and I'm only making a handful so I'm positive that I can get them done tonight or tomorrow.
Real quick for today I wanted to share with you this sweet and simple card I made for our youngest daughter -> she turned 5 about a month ago and well...you know...where in the heck did the time go?
For this card I used 3 sheets of card stock: white, dark teal, and light teal. Next I used one of my embossing folders on a piece of the white card stock and adhered that to the front cover, then using a couple of Spellbinders' dies I die cut the layered pieces that are shown on the inside cover and used a Tim Holtz movers & shapers die for the #5. Once I had all of my main pieces adhered in place I tied a couple of lengths of ribbon around the whole cover piece by slitting just enough space in the spine to thread my ribbon through and then added a double punched label using my Stampin' Up punches and called it done. Love how fast it came together - I tend to over think things and then make them harder than they need to be so this ended up being a good lesson for me - and I also love how simple it is yet still elegant.
Who knew right?
So that's all I have for today, hope your week is close to done so that those of us who celebrate Thanksgiving can get to it...enjoy your holiday and I'll see you back here next week with the start of some Christmas craft ideas.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!
