Happy Birthday

The purpose of Party Time Tuesdays is to keep on birthday cards.  I like that a lot because although I make a ton of cards, I don't always have a birthday card on hand when I need it.  This week they gave us a photo for inspiration:

I decided to make a stair step card:

I found some of the new Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 paper and picked up a couple of sheets.  Along with that I used CTMH's A Little Bit of Everything stamp set, Martha Stewart's Double Loop punch, and May Arts ribbon.  This is such a fun pattern, and I love the vintage-y way the card turned out.

This one is going in the Ladybug Crafts Ink ribbon challenge, too!
