Happy 50th Michael!

My DH turns 50 tomorrow! Happy Birthday Michael!!!!!
This card was a labor of love..........wanted to make something special so this has a little bit of this and that to it!
I used the Textured Plates Kit #4 from SU to dry emboss the main black card and then distressed it some with White craft ink. The I used a new punch I got at Michael's from EK Success that is a row of birthday candles. I layered this with two different colors of card stock. The designer paper is something I had in my stash. The ribbons are from a pack of adhesive backed ribbon I got a while ago on one of my trips to the Offray Ribbon outlet in Hagerstown! Perfect for the card!
The label was made with a stamp from the Cute & Curly Label Punch bundle and I used Everyday Flexible Phases for the words. Added some black brads and made a frame with the Curly Label punch to mount it on.
The inside is done with some pre-made black chipboard numbers from my stash and the horn thingy from the set Crazy for Cupcakes, and the word "Happy" from the set Happy Everything. So as you can see.........a little bit from here and there!
