Extreme Birthday... and an Oooops!

I made this card today for my nephew's birthday. It's a pretty quick and easy layout, with not much bling or extras - but it's for a boy, and it's going in the mail - had to keep it somewhat simple!

I used Lucky Limeade with Basic Gray and Black. And for the Designer Paper layer, I used Pick Your Poison papers. I love when the Holiday themed papers have some pieces that have regular patterns that you can easily use later on other stuff!!

For the banner, I used the Petal Cone die piece, and then stamped the On Your Birthday saying. I kind of wrinkled and smooshed and sponged it before I folded up the ends to make it the size I wanted.

And I also Smooch Spritzed the whole card - Love that, just haven't been doing it as much lately!

So then don't you hate when you create a card, and then this happens inside - AAaaccckkkk!! :(

You want to crumple it all up and throw it away... until you think about the time and effort you put into the front!

So there you go... Just stamp it again on a scrap piece of the same color, trim and glue it in there... Life is good again!

Have a great Sunday!

Great card and GREAT fix!!! I looks like you wanted to give the inside a "pop". Thanks for the tip!
