You're How Old?

What an appropriate card to send to anyone for their birthday, no matter how young or old.  These words sum up many birthday feelings all in one large birthday stamp.

To my Real Red card base I added a strip of Island Indigo Cardstock and Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper.  I stamped my sentiment on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out with my Big Shot using a Labels Collections Framelit. Before I placed this on my card with dimensionals, I cut two strips of Lucky Limeade cardstock using the Bitty Banners Framelits and cut another Real Red Labels Framelit, this one larger than the Whisper White layer.  I also embossed the cut red embosslit for added dimension.  I like the way it turned out, but I think if I made this card again, I would also place my Real Red Framelit on with dimensionals to make it stand out a bit more.
