This is a very special birthday for my Mother-in-Law, Phyllis. It is her 80th Birthday and I decided to make her a card. My husband wanted to give her a gift card, so I developed something that we could put the card in. This card has the gift card part plus an area behind the gift card we could write our personal message. I took a Stampin' Up "stamp a stack" class in November to make Christmas cards, and this Birthday card was based on that design. I love the way it turned out, the colors and the cute little rubber stamped images. Happy 80th Birthday Phyllis!
