Here's a birthday card I made last week. It was for a 13th birthday, so I wanted to make it cool and not too cutesy.
On the inside of the card, I made this little embellishment and added some flat, shiny circles that came from JoAnn's dollar embellishment bin. I handwrote "I hope your 13th was ROCKIN'-Happy Birthday!"

The base of the card is Cor-dinations in purple/black. I sanded the edges just a touch so that the purple would peek out a little on the front of the card.

I used the Hannah Montana for the Ready 2 Rock cut. The paper is American Crafts specialty foil paper (that I just happened to get on clearance @ Hobby Lobby 75% off!). I was concerned how this paper would cut in my Expression, so I used med pressure and multicut 2 and it cut like a dream.

The music notes are also from the HM cartridge, the shadow is cut from the foil paper and the black glittery paper is from Target's dollar scrapbooking spot. You get two sheets of the glittery paper for a buck. It is kind of messy though...the glitter is very loose on the paper and makes a big mess!

The pink/black heart cardstock is from DCWV, and I'm sorry I don't know which stack, but I got it in a variety pack from Big Lots.

I'm hoping to post some more cards I've done. Depends on how quickly blogger wants to upload my photos!
Have a great weekend! :)
