A Card in a Box

I'm sure by now the Card-in-a-Box idea is not new to you.  I've been having fun with these for some time.
I decided to pull out the idea again for my sister-in-law's BIG birthday.  I mean, how else can you celebrate a birthday like this?
See?
I totally packed my card full of good wishes and cheer!  Thin strips of Window Sheets make it easy to make some of the images look they are floating.
The Night of Navy base was folded and Sticky-stripped together and then the fun began.  Gold Glimmer Paper went through my Big Shot to make the numbers.   I searched through ALL my stamps looking for everything that would say "celebrate your day".
And of course, I just HAD to include "You're HOW old?" from Just Sayin'.  The matching framelits (Word Bubbles) helped with the perfect crop!  The Tangerine Tango striped paper is the Flowerpot Designer Series Paper.  (And look--a custom made envelope to match!  Easy peasy with the Envelope Punch Board!)
And I even got to color with my Blendabilities (including the brand new collections soon-to-be-released in Pink Pirouette and Soft Sky).  The "eat cake" stamp is from an up-and-coming set called One Tag Fits All

I had such fun with this...what do you think?  Is this a great way to celebrate a special day?  Won't you leave me a comment and let me know?
