Happy Belated Birthday!

I can't believe we're only halfway through January and I have already forgotten to mail a birthday card to one of my dear friends!  I have been looking at this sketch from retro sketches and decided it would be really neat with the Envelope Punch Board.
Although the card is late, the sentiment does not mention that. I am not a fan of those belated birthday sentiments!
It's hard to tell from the photo, but I used 5 different colors on the telephone. It took forever to color all those little pieces, but I really like the outcome so it was worth it!  I also added a little surprise decoration for my friend to find when she pulls out the card. :)

Stamp Sets: Timeless Talk, Really Good Greetings
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla
Ink: Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green, Pool Party

  1. I love this inventive card design Shana. Very cool. Neat that you decorated the pocket section for after the card is pulled out too. And chalk up another fun trick for the Envelope Punch Board. I'm really loving that tool and its versatility. Going into the CASE file for sure!

  2. CUTE!!! LOVE the fun colors--and I adore the image and sentiments! HUGS! :)

  3. This is so cute Shana :) love the way u die cut a semi circle from the panel :)

  4. I love the dsp- tab on one side, and use of punch to draw focus to the main stamp. Neat!

  5. This is FAB-u-lous hunni and thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving me such a sweet comment on my card!!
    hugs and xxx
