If I say it's a birthday card, it's a birthday card, alright?

I say that cos halfway through making this card I thought to myself "this looks more like a poster for a missing child" lol  I dunno, maybe some of you are thinking that too.  And that's fine :)  Really.  :)

I think that while I was making it, forefront in my mind were things like "the way we were", "years passing", "lost youth" etc  I'll be the first to admit that those aren't the cheeriest of birthday thoughts, and rest assured that I didn't include an insert that said "You're older! HA HA!" :)  For me, my happiest times crafting are when I just go with the flow, playing about without much planning or particular technique or materials in mind, and this was certainly one of those occasions, and I think that long after the birthday is over this card might still have a life as a little piece of art all of it's own :).  Fingers crossed :)

OK... I admit... it doesn't scream birthday card to me... but I certainly would not be against receiving it as such because as you so wisely say... it would look good all year as a piece of artwork!! ;)

Love it! I'd much rather receive a card that doubles as a piece of artwork, something that you can keep on display long past your birthday!

This is a fab card Dan and I so agree with the comments about displaying it as a piece of art after the event.
