40th Birthday Card

Hi all,

I made this card for my cousin today. Her birthday is Saturday. I am hoping the express post envelope arrives at her place tomorrow - I know, not going to happen, but hey, I can dream.

I used heavy black cardstock for the card base and reverted to type with the glitter (the red and both layers of the 40 - the picture does not show it well) ... oh how I've missed my glitter!

40 is from Birthday Bash and "over what hill?" is from Life's a Party. I tried to use my Imagine for this card, but I wasn't happy with what I chose. I am going to have to trawl YouTube and other blogs for instructions and ideas for the Imagine.

I am going to do my best from now on to do a design inside the card as well. I've seen some absolutely awesome cards lately with this feature and I think it's such a great finishing touch.

Have a great one,
