Timeless Tuesday: Birthday Wishes!

Howdy all!  Happy Tuesday!  It's time for another fabulous Timeless Tuesday Challenge over at Flourishes!!

This week's awesome challenge is hosted by the lovely, Amanda Havon, our Team Coordinator!  This week, Amanda is challenging you to create a birthday card or project (FLLC192).  Yup... it's a simple as that!  Here is what I created for this week's challenge...

Country Birthday

For my card this week I knew I needed to make a masculine card for my brother-in-law's birthday coming up at the end of the month so I began by making a Surprise Pop-Up card.  You can see the Splitcoast tutorial on how to create your own card here.

I first die cut my oval shape using my Spellbinder's Classic Oval Nestabilities die out of Flourishes Classic Ivory Cardstock.  Then I stamped the glorious "horse and pasture" image and matching sentiment form the Flourishes "Country Road" stamp collection.

At the button of my pull-up tag, I stamped the "barn and windmill" image, also from the "Country Road" stamp collection and then I stamped the "Happy Birthday to You" over top of it from the NEW "Sentimental Favorites" set in navy ink to match my top image.

That gorgeous fine twine is also one of Flourishes fabulous trims!  It's called "Kraft Jute" and goes perfectly with my country themed card this week! 

I also wanted to decorate the inside of my card with a message so I stamped the "Best Wishes" sentiment from the "Sentimental Favorites" set as my card's finishing touch!

Take a peek at what my fellow Timeless Tuesday designers have created for today…
