In the pocket...

...that's where you'll find the birthday greetings in this card.  This is a pocket card.  I thought I had a simple idea for this card, but the process just didn't flow  : / took a LOT longer than I expected to make this card.
But, I am pleased with how it turned out.
I will be posting this card to the "Just Us Girls" challenge.  This will be the very first challenge that I have participated in.  I've wanted to do this for a long time, and finally worked up the nerve to do it!  By the way, you can see the JUGS blinkie in the far right column of my blog page.  There are a lot of challenges on various papercrafting sites.  Sometimes you could win a prize or sometimes recognition and getting your work posted on-line.

The card "recipe" is:
Real Red CS from Stampin' Up!
Whisper white CS from SU!
g.c.d designer paper
EK Success wavy border punch
Slot punch from SU!
Happy Birthday 10 stamp from Stampabilities
Winter White EP from SU!
The ribbon is from Michael's
