Centurion Birthday Card!

What would I do without all those fabulous challenge blogs? This is Jen's SFYTT but I turned it to portrait style. This is my birthday card for Amy's Card Drive. Check out my Blog Candy to support her Card Drive for up to 3 ways to get your name into the drawing!!!

I have a TON of neglected Basic Grey...this is from the Romani line...definitely an older pattern BUT just as sweet...how can anyone resist those fun and fresh colors?! I wanted to, of course, incorporate the lucky number 100 so I dehoarded my Thickers vinyl...they are nestled onto a Prima flower. Don't you love the Happy Birthday stamp? Great font ala Impress.

Look what 'd' surprised me with the other night....he ordered this. He read my blog post and picked it up for me....he is such the keeper.

Did you hear that Pam of 365 Cards has launched her Mac Mae card kits today??!! You know you want to check it out....it is FABulous!!!!

Okay, hurry to enter my blog candy, commenting is open until midnite on Saturday, April 4th. I'll post the winner on Monday, April 6th!!!

Sweet card and SWEET hubby! That's so so nice of him! I don't think mine reads my blog. He only looks when I post something about him and that's only after I tell him :p He's just not into this crafty blogging stuff. He's busy with his own vintage card message boards :p

Amy,
This is so pretty. I love your paper choices!

Laura O'Donnell said...

I also have a ton of BG, but in some ways not enough BG if you know what I mean. Great card for the big 1-0-0!

Carla said...

Oh, man, "d" rocks!!!

Love this BG line, and your gorgeous card! The way you put the numbers on the flower is so clever, and it looks supah!
