Simply gifted

Hello, wanna come and play at 365 Cards today?  The challenge is to make a card and include a present or gift on it.
I was initially a bit stuck for ideas, but when I got started I thought of more and more things to add.
So, I started with a square of patterned paper, then overlaid a smaller square of white card with a rectangle cut from the middle to make my gift.  Next I added my ribbon bow thing (I'm sure it's got a proper name but I can't think of it right now ...) I started with a glue dot on a piece of its backing paper and folded and glued down loops of the ribbon, then finished it with a pink gem.  After adding the length of ribbon around my gift, and the (8) sequins, I figured it needed a gift tag too and was delighted to find my teeny tiny tag punch, and even more delighted to find a stamp set with 'for you' small enough to fit on it!
I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment, then added a shadow to it by stamping again without re-inking just next to it.

I'm also entering this into
