Happy 40th Birthday!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful New Year! I have a fun card to share today that I made for a friend's 40th birthday.

I always love using this fun CAS-ual Fridays WTF stamp set for 40th and 50th birthdays. I used rainbow colored inks from Fun Stampers Journey and my MISTI to stamp the panel and then splattered it with some FSJ Sour Lemon Silk. Sadly you cannot see how the silk sparkles in the picture, but it does add some great shine.

The panel was die cut with a Whimsy Stamps Hand Stitched Rectangle die and inlaid into a frame created using the same die on MFT Rainbow Stripes paper. I finished off my card with some FSJ Amazing Trim that had been tied with FSJ Whip Cream Thread and sprinkled some trim pieces around. I love how this came out. Rainbows always make me happy!

I'm entering this into the first Seize the Birthday challenge of the new year, which is "Anything Goes". Also, since all of my Fun Stampers Journey supplies & my FSJ business is new, I will enter this at Just Us Girls #375 Word Week - New

**Edited - I just remembered the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #164 - Celebrations & I am adding my card there. Don't know how I forgot that one! Sorry, Michelle!**

All of the Fun Stampers Journey products I used on my card are available on my website here. I hope everyone has a wonderful week! Enjoy!
