The BIG 3-0!

If your name is Autumn, please do not scroll down and see your birthday card hehe

I had so much fun making this card.  My best friend and I have celebrated our birthdays together every year for many years now.  Mine is August 13 and hers is the 14th.  She is one grade ahead of me, but two years ahead in age.  Therefore, as I turn 28 this year, she turns…

you guessed it…



So I decided to get her card made early, because CASual Fridays is having an oh-so-perfect challenge:


And of course Moxie-Fab World’s Birthday card challenge is still running, so I’m putting this one in for that, too!


I plan on mailing this so I kept it a touch flatter than usual – but didn’t turn down the spunk!  The banner panel was a blast – several shades of Adirondack Alcohol Ink swiped across some glossy cardstock in a plaid pattern was exactly what I wanted to do when I saw one of the cards from CASual Friday’s DT team.  (Here’s a post I did awhile back on how to make plaid using alcohol ink).  I didn’t want to distract from that, so white letters on top were perfect.  And the glitter numbers – hoo boy is she gonna be mad when she gets this in the mail!! Baring teeth smile Birthday cake lol!!
