My First CDAC Swap Card

Another new card to show you today.

I made this card for my first swap at CDAC. The challenge was a Birthday card challenge, sponsored by Shelly's Images. Now that all the cards were swapped and mailed back, before I'm able to show you a pic.

I chose to go with a male birthday card, since those are something that people usually need more of. I used the Here's Looking At You image, by Shelly's Images, and is colored with Promarkers. The birthday patterned papers are from my stash. The border is punched with a border punch by Fiskars. The sentiments, "another year," and "another birthday" are punched using the word window and modern label punches by Stampin Up.
The inside says: "And You're Still Looking Good!" I attached the image and sentiments with foam mounting tape for 3D effect and dimension.

Thank you to all the ladies who participated in this swap and sharing their beautiful work!!
