happy 30th

Happy Monday!!  Oh how I LOVE holiday Mondays.  It's Family Day here so I've got a whole, blessed day to stamp, craft, and lounge around in Lululemon.  Gotta love it.  So, now that Valentine's Day is over, on to the March birthdays.  I've got a few, and as the mojo would have it, the card I got done first, happens to be the last card I need for the month.  Figures.  LOL  Anyhow, this is a little something inspired by a square card base covered in that fab Pure Poppy polka dot from the Beautiful Blooms paper pack that has been knocking around my craft bin for months.

The huge white polka dots always make me think of summer, so I used Enchanted Evening as a mat and stamped on Stamper's Select white.  The sentiment was from last month's release, Big Birthday Wishes, which I masked and inked up with Memento inks.  I really wanted the year to stand out, so I die cut the 30 from a springy green dot from Bo Bunny.  Love this paper!! 

The last line from the sentiment was the start of a well finished interior.  I added a present die cut from the Make A Wish die collection, and created a mat to mirror the one on the front that goes off the edge of the page.  So, here it is, a card full of my favorite things, for one of my favorite people.  Now, I just have to order the gift and I'm all set.  Weeks in advance, too!

Not much else other than, thanks for coming by.

Bright & fun! Love the mat going off the edge--so effective both inside & out! Aren't those numbers dies the best? :-)
