Happy Birthday, Carl!




Hi everyone,  Here's a card combining two digital sets from Doodle Pantry's new release -- the cap and sentiment from Topped with Class and Classic Numbers.

This card is for my brother-in-law who is turning 92 this month.  Since he'll only claim to be 81... his birthday is always celebrated with an "81 Forever" party.  Since he is also a huge Orioles fan, I embellished the card with an Orioles logo and used a orange and black color theme.  This card was made with the help of SU! punches and a rectangle die as well as a new Lil' inker designs stitched mat die.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
ABC Challenge -- O is for orange
Cards Galore Encore Challenge #7 -- Use a Digi or Rubber Stamp somewhere on your creation
Digi Choosday Challenge Wk 27 -- Punches and dies

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope you have a great day!

Happy Birthday, Carl!!
