Getting Older

My friend Nathan, that is. He turned 40 on Monday, September 10th. So I made him a special birthday card. He loves bright colors, so I made it as bright and manly as possible. And in case you are wondering; he is a child at heart and likes the little raccoon guy. We had an awesome day celebrating his birthday. I am so blessed to have him in my life.

Creative Details: I had fun making this card. I made a template for the "40" in Publisher and cut it out of Real Red CS. I stamped the back ground stamp (Linograph) and then used my opaque white pen to enhance the dots in the stamped image. I used images from the Hip Hip Hooray set to make the background and elements on the card. I used the beautiful In-Colors stitched ribbon and a little double swirly clip. There is Stickles glitter glue on the present, cupcake and raccoon's button.
