Today's card is one I created for our oldest son, whose birthday is today!  

The items I used to create this card are ALL available and are mostly found in the ONLINE ONLY section of your CTMH consultant's website...make sure you don't miss out on all of these GREAT items that are "hiding" in our online catalog! 

I did use a NEW paper pack -- the Wood Grain paper, as well as the X9017 Mix In papers.

I used this handsome stamp set & thin cut (metal dies)'s perfect for those outdoor people that are family or friends! Our oldest son loves to fish --and so that was the image of my choice when creating his birthday card. 

I had my hubby come down in my craft room to tell me the correct colors needed for this fish---this is what he told me to use. 😍

It turned out so LIFE like & looks so much better in person. The camera didn't pick up the lovely shimmer that is on the top and belly of this fish.  So FUN!!   

Here is the list of products I used to create this card: 
X9017 Mix In Papers
X8017 Wood Grain Paper
X5957 Sapphire Cardstock
1385 White Daisy Cardstock
D1899 Birthday Greetings
X254 Value Pack White Cards & envelopes
