Birthday Wishes For Garrett


My dear friend Barbara Campbell made a fantastic masculine card the other day for a sweet young man who will be turning 16 on February 29th, a Leap Year baby!  His name is Garrett and you can read about his story here:  Cards For Garrett.

This is the card I will be mailing out to wish Garrett a VERY Happy Birthday!  I am entering this card in the Challenge at ScrapyLand, Anything Goes!

If you would like to send some Happy Mail, here is Garrett's address:

Garrett Brown
61 West Vineyard Rd
Hayesville, NC 28904

I used several stamp sets from Gina K Designs; All Occasion Tags, Poster Board Sentiments, Pretty Patterns 2, and Simple Numbers.  Spellbinders Classic Circle dies, MFT Sun, Moon & Stars and Vertical Frame die sets and a Star paper punch. 
I layered a smaller star die on 2 of the larger stars to create that open star look.  Cut out a bunch of different sized stars in different Designer Papers.  Swiss Dots Embossing Folder on a few of them to add some texture.  Baker's Twine for accent.

Inside I stamped this inspirational quote and his birthday date.

At last count they had received over 900 birthday cards from across the globe, how fantastic!  I know as card makers we are a generous lot, so if you have one little birthday card hanging around, won't you please send it?  Thank you!

And thanks to one of my most favorite people, Barb, for letting me know about this card drive!

Hope you all have a HAPPY day!
