New Technique - Cuttlebug Embossed Bday Card

First I want to say that I cased the basic card idea from Virgo5 on SplitCoastStampers (click for her card). On SplitCoast Stampers they had a technique where you ink up the negative part of your cuttlebug embossing folder (that's the side with the cuttlebug logo on it) and I love the look. To check out the full instructions go to Split Coast Stampers . My card looks more colorful in person then in the picture.

Card recipe:

Stamp set: SU Birthday Whimsy (no longer available)
Inks: SU Pixie Pink (on the one balloon ,on the embossing folder, and on the Happy Birthday saying), SU Purely Pomegrantate, the green is from a Color Box Ink wheel (non SU).
Other accessories: balloon ribbons are floss (they matched well), Pattern paper is Sandylion Wide Stripes, Green cardstock non SU, eyelet non SU, Cuttlebug Happy Birthday Embossing Folder, SU Certainly Celery ribbon.
