"Hot" Birthday Card

This isn't one of the "nicest" cards I've ever made and I mean that in two different ways, 1) it's not very good (I have a hard time working with vellum) and 2nd The sentiment isn't very nice, the inside of the card reads "I'm referring to the hot flashes!". But it's all in good fun :)

I'm sorry for the picture quality, I scanned it in instead of taking a photograph.
I used papers from my stash (the team over at Practical Scrappers would be proud) I embossed the red vellum with my Cuttlebug Swiss dots folder and I punched the edge of the yellow cardstock with a Paper Studio edge punch. I stamped a sun with a Fiskars stamp on yellow and orange vellum and then cut them out one a little smaller than the other. I attached the suns with a sun shaped eyelet that came with my Crop-a-dile set. The orange ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment is hand written and then I chalked the edges.
