Birthday Jackpot


There are a few times when I receive a special request for a card and I instantly feel nervous that I won't be able to pull it off. They're either vague in their description, or they ask for an image or theme I don't have and it makes my stomach drop that I won't be able to give them what they're asking for. Then there are the cards that just completely fall into place and this is one of them. I received a special request for someone who loved the casino and especially loved playing the penny slots. I had recently found this great casino paper and did a quick search for some digital casino clip art, and everything just happened.

I colored the slot machine with my Prismas before matting it to a scalloped circle and adhering it with foam tape. I used a plain black ribbon to separate the green DP from the casino themed DP and then added a sentiment with a single brad so that it moves. For the inside, I added "Hope your birthday hits the jackpot!" and called it a day. If they could all be this easy... :)

Thanks for stopping by!
