Hey there! One of my good friends from my hometown is turning 40 in early August, so I wanted to send her an extra special card in honor of this extra special occasion.

I used two challenges to get the creative mojo flowing. CAS-ual Fridays Challenge 134: Tic Tac Toe (dots, gray, twine) and Seize the Birthday: Stringing Along More Birthday Wishes!

Here's what I came up with:

I hope she likes it!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: Truth Is (CAS-ual Fridays Stamps)
Ink: Onyx Black Versafine (Tsukineko)
Cardstock: White and Berry Sorbet (Papertrey Ink)
Patterned Paper: Hello Sunshine 6x6 Inch Petite Paper Pack (Lawn Fawn)
Dies: By The Numbers (Papertrey Ink), centers of reinforcements from Tag Me (Reverse Confetti)
Twine: Gray (Pretty Pink Posh)
Adhesive: Quickie Glue Pen (Sakura), Mono Multi Liquid Glue (Tombow), Foam Dots (American Crafts)
