40TH Birthday

Good morning!  Thought I would share the card I made for my younger sister's birthday; as you see, she's the BIG 4-0!  I remember when I turned 30 and she couldn't believe I was "that old"!  LOL

I knew I wanted to go with a bit of humor and Stella fits the bill!  She is colored with pencils...I held myself in check with the glitter, as my sister really isn't a glittery type of was hard though.  I pieced together a background of DP strips, added some Bella Dots in the corners, and the number 40 to finish it off.  Below is the message inside:

Image/Sentiment: Bugaboo Stamps
Ink: Printer
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, SU! Poppy Parade, American Crafts DP
Embellies: Bella Dots
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, PTI Number Dies, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

Craft Room Challenge: Something New (American Crafts 6x6 Pad)
Opus Gluei: The Start of Something Big (New Decade)

Thanks for stopping by; have a super weekend!

Hello, what a fun happy card! I love that you went with gentle humor and leaned towards her color likes (but who doesn't like lovely glitter? sigh). This is really a great card and I bet she loved it.

Love where you took the Opus Gluei theme! I'm sorry it took me so long to come over and comment, shame on this Poobah. I hope you come back for our latest theme, would love to see your spin on it!
