Birthdays are like shoes...

(click image to enlarge)

This was a pretty simple card to make. I used my Cricut for the Z and tag shapes. I hand wrote the "Happy Birthday" and attached the tag to the Z with a heart shaped mini brad. The strip of blue paper was cut with a simple paper trimmer and stamped with a shoe stamp from Michaels using white ink (which was pretty slow to dry).

The sentiment at the bottom is from a homemade rub-on embellishment. It says "Birthdays are like shoes..." The sentiment is completed inside with another homemade rub on that says, "You can never have too many!"

I think if I make a card like this again, I'll use a solid color for the letter, and have the background paper as the patterned paper.

I LOVE the stamped paper! That looks so cool. Is it kind of textured? It's difficult to get a good idea of it from the picture.
