Birthday Card & a Winner!

Before we get started today, I want to announce the winner of the adorable 6x6 Echo Park This & That:  Graceful paper pack, from the My Creative Time March Stamp Release Blog Hop:
DebC said...  Cute invitation! I love these little shrinky dinks I have to get me some to play with and make something for our little grand daughters. This is sweet.

Congrats, Deb!  I've sent an email out to you to get your address!  And the rest of you should be sure to stop by My Creative Time to see if you were one of the other winners!

Today I'm sharing a birthday card that I made for my principal.  Since she is 50 weeks younger than me (note:  that is NOT a year, LOL), I'm allowed to tease her about her age.  My cream card base is 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4".  The brown is 5 1/4" x 4", and the striped patterned paper, from Papertrey Ink, is 5" x 3 3/4".

I used the Papertrey Ink Movers & Shakers:  Zipper die and the Movers & Shakers Sentiments stamp set for my sentiment.

When she pulls back the zipper, this sentiment will be revealed.

The adorable kite and clouds are from the Silhouette Online Store.  I used some pretty My Mind's Eye patterned paper for the kite and then attached some twine with Glossy Accents to create the string.

Here's a peek at the inside.

Products used for this card:
