Monochrome birthday

While searching for a piece of purple scrap paper for the hat on yesterday's card, I came across this piece of embossed paper.  It didn't take long to turn it into a birthday card for another of my Red Hat friends celebrating a June birthday.  

The birthday stamp is from CTMH.  I used White Daisy ink and gave myself a pat on the back for not smearing it!  I'm still contemplating the addition of white pearls in the center of all the punched x's, or maybe just 3 across the top embossed strip.
