A Gatsby Birthday

Time for a new challenge at C.R.A.F.T. challenges.  This time it's a Birthday challenge.  And a hop.  As a member of the Sassy Studio Designs DT,  I played along.  When I make a birthday card, it's usually for a specific person so I gear it towards them.  This was different making a general birthday card, but fun. So here's my card.

Here are pics of some of the stuff I used.


DP pack
I got this at Michael's when they had about 8 different packs on sale for $5 each. And it's heavy paper. What a deal.

The Recollections rhinestones are also from Michael's and were on Clearance for $0.99. I got them in purple and green.  I need to go back and get the other 3 patterns they had. (they'll probably be gone)  And the birthstone ones are from Pat Catan's.  They were only $0.25.  I got every color they had. (6 colors)
Mega Deal!
I popped up the image and sentiment on homemade black foam squares.

Thax for looking and please comment and follow.
