Birthday cheer!

I made this card for a friend who was celebrating her 40th birthday. Her favorite color is orange, so this card totally screams "orange".

I wanted to see if the other-tini fit in the billboard of my beloved work van right. Yep. With the help of a little masking, it fit, which made me smile.

To widen my smile and to commemorate the 40th "over-the-hill" theme, I stamped swirly hearts, flowers (flower power), and skulls in orange ink onto the circles in the Basic Grey paper.

The truck driver is chester parrot right. I only used part of him. He usually holds a present in his talons. He's way cute and comes in right and left facing versions. Cool, eh? Yep. Very.

The sentiment is a combo of "cheers" and "happy bird day".

I just realized that the design of this card is screamingly similar to the card below this. Too bad, so sad. If you can't "case" yourself, who can you case?!?

Most importantly, my friend liked the card!

Thanks for visiting today!
