birthday card sent to son

My son  (Chris Hiatt) called last night frm the intake center at MSP and they wouldn't give him a birthday card because it was too embellished.  What does that mean?  It was just a birthday card.  Can someone please explain to me what "too embellished" means.  Thank you.  Karen Simpson

Birthday Card Rejected

Did the card have any electronics in it?  Did it have glitter, crayon, marker, or stickers on it?  Usually it needs to be a very plain looking card.
