40th Birthday

 Last week, I created a tag, and today, I finally got it put unto a card to celebrate the 40th birthday of a man at our church.  I wanted to keep the card relatively simple so the tag could remain the star of the show.    I used a bit of blue from the same paper pack as the scraps on the tag.  But it seemed a bit too plain, so I stamped a circle background on it and then it was just right.  I added a bit of brown glitter card stock and some red enamel dots.


Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Cupcakes" and "birthday" from the "happy cling set"
Dies: PTI tag; Stamps of life star flip set
