Display Birthday Card for a teen with CTMH You Rock, Numbers Solos, True Friends and Happy Birthday

It just doesn't seem possible that my little baby girl is now 14 years old.  Truly the time has just flown by.  It seems like such a short time ago I was sitting on the hospital bed with this wonderous tiny pink bundle with dark hair and huge dark eyes.  I remember softly crying and thanking God for giving me a little baby girl to love.  I still remember and still feel that intense emotion of pure gratitude and love - she is mine and I am hers forever.  She looked beautiful and I looked like something out of a horror movie - I was induced and had 19 hours of straight, hard full-out labor.  I pushed so hard to get her out (her left arm came out with her head so I almost had to have her pushed BACK in and have an emergency c-section) that I had popped just about every blood vessel in my eyes and face.  Yeah, no glow of new motherhood for a while from me that time!

On to the card!  Have I mentioned how much I LOVE our new You Rock paper pack?!?  This set is just perfect for doing cards and layouts for those teen girls and boys!  How perfect to make this absolutely rockin' display card.  It fits into a business envelope all folded up but then you open it up - POW - you get this awesome display card!  Darling Daughter loved it and she can display it on her desk while that glow of "newly 14" is still with her.  My birthday wishes (ever so sappy and loving) are written on the back and stay private from view when she has friends over.

The giant numbers on the front are from our Numbers Solos  - some of my very favorites for making number birthday cards, hats and party goods.  I've used liquid glass over the tops after I adhered them to the card fronts as well as a bit on the birthday sentiment.  There is actually fairly little in the way of stamping on this card - the POP and POW is all from the fun paper and the funky fold.  The card is 6" high and opens all the way out to 12" long (shorter when the folds are in place for display).

Materials Used:
Paper:  You Rock Level 2
Stamps:  Solos Number 1, Solos Number 4, Happy Birthday, True Friends (Jan 10 Stamp of the Month)
Other:  Bitty Sparkles on the frame, Star brads from Gold My Accents (retired)
