Simon's Birthday

Tomorrow is our son Simon's birthday  so I needed inspiration to come up with something
suitable and it's not easy doing cards for fellas - as you all know well.

I decided to keep it simple with crisp clean lines, and decided that I would use
the Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing folder to do stripes.
Horizontally for the top section and vertically on the bottom section.
Kept to a colour combo of Night of Navy and Whisper White.
Punched two borders to go either side of the ribbon using the
Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch.  Stamped the sentiment
 from Happiest Birthday  Wishes (Hostess set) and die cut "Son"
using the Timeless Type Junior Alphabet Medium Sizzlits Dies.
