World Card Making Day!

Happy World Card Making Day!!  I hope all of you were able to create some wonderful cards today.  I haven't had time to check out many blogs yet today, but I'm looking forward to browsing around and seeing everyone's creations.

This afternoon, my sweetie and I went to a ninth birthday party.  After my morning run, I came home and put this card together for the birthday girl.  She's not a real girly-girl, so I stayed away from the more 'traditional' girly colors and images.  I also wanted to play around a bit and create something other than just a standard A2 size card.  This is what I came up with - thanks for stopping by for a look!

Card base is rectangles from Plantin Schoolbook welded together
