Happy Birthday

I needed a birthday card for my brother and decided I didn't want to use the same images I've used for other of his cards.  So, I gathered up some of the "funnier" sayings for birthdays and stamped them every which way on the card front.

I added a strip of black and white striped washi tape down the "spine" area and added black and white baker's twine on top of the tape. I added one sentiment in black ink to tie in with the tape and baker's twine, a few metallic discs and I was done.  I think it turned out pretty good, don't you?

Supplies used:
Many, many birthday sentiment stamps
SU inks and card stock

Would love to hear from ya!

What a great idea, Mom! Love the word play approach to this and an unexpected twist on the masculine card! I was thinking the same thing for UD....already used the motorcycle....hmmmm, what to do? you came up with a great idea!
