Birthday cards with ribbon, embossed cardstock and 3D embellishements

Birthday cards for some special women!!  One of the groups I belong to has decided to send birthday cards to all of our members in 2019 so I volunteered to get cards ready.  I have made all the card kits and we are getting together tonight to put them together which doubles the blessing!!
All the cards are different and I have varied the greetings - round, label, rounded square and square.  All of the 3D embellishments are prepared and the sponging has been done so we will be simply assembling them but I have provided the supplies with enough flexibility that each person making them will be able to add their own creativity to the process!!
So these cards have a coloured cardstock base with a coordinating decorative paper background.  A strip of embossed cardstock and a piece of gros grain ribbon.  The greetings were laser printed, trimmed and sponged a coordinating colour.  A wide variety of 3D embellishments - layered punchies and die cuts, sequins and some fun glittered elements to add a bit of bling!!  
Getting a handmade birthday card in your mail box is always a treat in this digital age!!'
