Sweet Birthday Wishes

I get so busy with DT work that I rarely have time to just "play" and create a card that I need "to have" not need "to make."  And it's just as rare that I get to play with just any stamp that I want.  But I have a bit of a vacation from one team and another one closed down, so I have that free time and this is the result:
 A young girl at our church just turned 14 this past week and this card is for her.  Here is the inside of the card:
 Continuing in my quest to use my bits and pieces stash, the die cut 4 was from the stash.  I just needed to die cut the one to complete the number pair.  It small, but it's a step in the right direction.

Supplies:
Stamps: YNS "Phoebe with Her Wagon"; PTI "Big Birthday Wishes"
Dies: Spellbinders "Classic Circles, large"; PTI numbers border die; Sweet n' Sassy stamps grass die
Papers: Pebbles "Garden Party"
