Happy Birthday Michael!

     My son celebrated his 30th birthday on Sunday. Saturday evening,my husband & I took him and his girlfriend out to dinner.  The color combination of the card I made for him was inspired by this card by Heather Nichols.  

     This was the first card I made using my Zipper Die.


        I did remember to take a picture of the hidden message prior to adhering the top potion of the card.


Of course my son didn't tell me what he wanted for his birthday. He is so hard to buy for. Although I didn't get him a gift card, I used my seed packet die to create a holder for the check I gave him.


 Since he was visiting overnight I quickly snapped a photo of  what the card looked like after he pulled the tab. (Sorry for the blurriness)




     Thank you for stopping by.

Great card Carol, the colour scheme and design is perfect for a guy! But it's that gift card holder that really steals the show for me - Background Basics: Medallions looks amazing in the background and the accents are perfect!!

Thanks so much for leaving some love on my blog!
