Today I have an unusual Birthday Card.  I made it for a dear friend that I love to laugh with.    I fell in love with this stamp set, Young At Heart, when I first saw the ladies.  Then after reading the sentiments I knew I had to have it in my hands.  As we get older it seems to me it is the little things that make us happy.  And for me that is Friends!!!



The look of the front is dominated by the Designer Series Paper in the background.  I wanted that to shine and not have a battle between the stamped areas and the DSP.  And yes, I have used the Stampin’ Blends again.  I think I am addicted!!!

Because of the dark card base, it is Pretty Peacock, I knew I needed a white insert for the inside.  I decided to use one of the DSP leftover pieces to add some pizzaz to the inside as well.  I do not usually show the inside of my cards, but I have this one for you.





I had originally intended for the inside sentiment to be on the front of the card.  Of course I realized that didn’t work for the birthday.  So I used the new Timeless Label punch to give it some love and then added it to the DSP strip on the inside.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you like the unusual birthday card.  In a way, different is nice!
