Happy Golden Birthday Card

I wanted to make a special card for this very special lady. Maria, my BIL’s girlfriend…Caitie and Payton call her Aunt Maria ; ) , celebrated her Golden Birthday this year! I made a card for her earlier this month and forgot to share it with you. Just in case you didn’t know…a Golden Birthday is the birthday when you turn the same age as your birthdate. Example:  Because I was born on Feb 28, I already celebrated my Golden Birthday when I turned 28 years old. It comes once in a person’s lifetime! That’s what makes it SO special, unique, and rare. It’s also referred to as a person’s Grand Birthday, Lucky Birthday, Champagne Birthday, or Star Birthday. Go ahead and make it a BIG deal! It is! Have fun with it! I wanted Maria’s card to be full of fun and love…just like her!

So, I made this card using items from the Amy Tangerine Sketchbook Collection by American Crafts.
