Happy Birthday

I made this card for my Daughter's room mate in University. She's turning 19...in Canada that's age of majority. She's actually American...so at least in Canada when she's here for school...she's legal to PARTY!
Well I decided to use this graffiti like image from the Out of Character cart. I think it turned out well...bright and fun. Thanks for dropping by...Lee-Ann :)

ps...I paper pieced the little gifts inside the card...I know...gasp! I never paper piece, but these were just easy rectangles :)

Recipe:

  • MME-Limetwist twine and Echo Park-Hello Summer 6" patterned paper pad**
  • Stampin' Up-Pennant punch, Every Little bit(gifts) and Something to Celebrate(inside sentiment) stamp sets
  • White Signo gel pen**
  • Bazzill-white and chocolate cardstock**
  • Martha Stewart border punch
  • Amy R-It's your Birthday stamp set(19th and Birthday stamps)**
  • Cricut cart -Out of Character-pg 34-cut at 4.5"(all layers)
  • Cuttlebug embossing folders-Polka Dot and Swiss Dot**
**all the starred products were purchased at DAT'S...my fav LSS**

I have never paper pieced not sure what it is, someone tried to explain it to be once, but still not sure how it's done.. But I love the little packages inside.. And I can see why you are happy with how it turned out, it is an AWESOME card.. Makes me want to dig out that cartridge and play around with it... Your daughter's friend will LOVE it.
