Best Day Ever!

I have a card on the 3 Girl JAM Challenge blog today. It's the final day of this challenge -- anything goes with ribbon.  So get going and link up!
I made this card and took it to my BFF's last week on our road trip.  I had every intention of leaving it when we left, signing it from the dogs. They love going to "Aunt Sheri's", as we refer to her.
As it turned out, it wasn't the best day ever and it didn't seem appropriate to leave this card.  More on that tomorrow.  This card will wait for a happier day to be delivered to my BFF.
I used a bubblegum pink cardstock for the base, then used a layer of black.  I used a Lifestyle Crafts circle die to cut a hole in the white wood grain cardstock on the front of the card, making a window.  I then used silver StazOn ink to stamp on the black layer, carefully aligning it where the window will  be when the front is attached. I stamped with Hero Arts neon inks, using Studio Calico banner stamps.  The "best day ever" sentiment is a Unity stamp.
The ribbon is, of course, 3 Girl JAM.  I used ribbon from the Celebrations bundle and the Wine & Jewels bundle.  They, and many more, can be found in the 3 Girl JAM store.  I wove them together across the front of the card, then tied them together in a double bow.
The heart sequins are from my stash.  I have no idea where they came from or how long I've had them.  I thought they added some nice color in with the neon inks and fit well with how I planned to use the card.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
