Birthday Gift Card Holder

I saw this SVG cut and I wanted to try it,
 but I have mixed feelings about the end result.
The picture really doesn't do it justice - 
the colors are much brighter than the picture shows.

"Happy" is done in a lime green and outlined in black.
"BDAY" and "29th" were cut twice. 
 The ribbon was cut from a silver metallic paper and embossed with swirls. 
 I added the bow and gem and popped it for dimension.
Do not glue the ribbon on the front or you won't have a "slot" for the gift card or currency.
I did like the "tag holder" at the top for attatching it to a present, etc.
I think I will do some redesigning the next time I make this particular item.
