40th Birthday

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built and this week it is a fan favorite: Anything Goes!! And here is the card I created for your inspiration:
 Here is the inside:
My cousin is turning 40 at the end of the month, so I created this for him.  I can send this kind of card because I turned 40 3 months ago.  It's a little cheeky without being too over the top.  The papers were all scraps (trimmed a little bit) and I added enamel dots in bright colors to coordinate.  I used a sunburst stencil on the inside to create a "glow" on the horizon.  And I die cut the "40" out of scraps as well.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you will hop over to the House blog to see the rest of the DT's creations and then get inky and play along with us.  And if you need any of the stamps I used, check out my 10% off your ENTIRE order coupon code over in my left sidebar.

Love your 40th birthday card for your cousin, and the "cheeky" sentiment is perfect. The sunburst in the inside is perfect.

WooHoo for a non-Holiday card!

What a fun birthday card! Love how you did the sunbeams inside --- they go perfectly with the sentiment!
Hope you had a very Merry Christmas and will be blessed in 2020!

Such a cool card and that distant glow cracked me up! I also loved how 40 had those rays behind it.. that's a great design to match the sentiment. Thank you for joining us at Time out Challenges and wish you and your family a Very Happy New Year! Hugs ~ Ishani.
