Happy Birthday! CTD #380 & PTI Make It Monday

HBD to my son--Cory!

Today my oldest turns 30 years old! I won't say, "My how time flies!" We already know that, right? I found some needed inspiration at Color Throwdown #380 & Make It Monday #239.  CTD #380's color scheme is white, gray and red.  I just love those colors.  MIM #239's challenge was to customize patterned paper. The design was inspired by Cornelila (fun stamping). Please hop over to see her card. It's amazing!

Below is the recipe for my card:
  • The "happy" was cut from Cricut's "A Child's Year" out of PTI Pure Poppy cardstock
  • The gray background strip is from PTI's Argyle Sock collection which I stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with white powder. The repeated stamp is from PTI's Grunge Me
  • Next, I took some images from a Cocoa Daisy paper...the cassette tapes...and fussy cut them. I brushed the circles with Wink of Stella.
  • Finally, the birthday sentiment is from PTI's Embroidered Blooms.  How I have loved, loved using the sentiments from that collection.
Thanks for stopping by!  Comments are appreciated!!

Shhh! He doesn't know it yet, but tomorrow we will have a huge party!
