The Big 60

My Father-in-law turned 60 today.  This is the card I created for him:
 I wanted it to be more than just a plain card, so I followed this tutorial to create a 'magic slider card'.

Fun, right?!

Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Hot Air Balloon Cluster" (I cut mine apart so I could stamp the balloons separately) and "Clouds" ; PTI "Big Birthday Wishes" sentiments
Dies: Spellbinders "Classic Ovals, large" and banner; MFT "Blueprints 13" small banner; PTI "by the Numbers border die"

That's really cool! When you pull up the tag, it looks like the hot air balloon is rising. Perfect image for this kind of card.
