Stampin' Up! Bliss and Pool Party for an elegant Birthday Card

I have been creating, but just not blogging! I have a backlog of cards to show you, which never happens! I like to blog on the same day I create in general, so to have 4 cards waiting to be posted is a little odd for me.... Here is one I made yesterday.
Two photos today, as I didn't that you can't see the sentiment in the first one, and don't like the glare in the second *sigh* 
I have used a white card base, layered it with some speciality paper from KaiserCraft, wrapped some Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon (swoon) on top. I cut out a Pool Party scallop circle using the Big Shot, and a circle in Whisper White. I stamped the circle with the filigree from Bliss in Pool Party and the sentiment in Versamark. I sprinkled a mix of silver embossing powder and glitter to create some bling and heat set it. Layered the circles and popped it on the card front. The final step for this card was rounding the corners :)
I am entering this into two challenges, the first is the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger, I was inspired by the silver, white and the tiny touches of blue, mine is a little brighter, but I think it fits still... The second challenge is the Inspirational Card Sketches which was a super sketch for my style this week :) I am also entering their design team call (wish me luck!)
I've got more to share, but it will have to wait until after work tomorrow,
Happy Stamping!
