Sneak Peek - A Confetti Wishes Birthday

Today I'm sharing a card I made using the new Confetti Wishes paper from Close To My Heart Annual Inspirations book along with a few other new products that will be released in August.   This paper is so much fun!!

My great uncle turns 90 next week and his family is throwing a big party!  When I say '90' don't you dare think wheelchairs, nursing homes and canes!   He still lives at home, travels... ALOT and even has a cabin that he and his sons have been rebuilding up in Canada.  He is a World War II vet and always has lots of stories to share.  When people talk about favorite uncles, my Great Uncle Ed always come to mind.  I wish I could join in the party this weekend but I had other obligations already on my calendar.  So, I created this fun card to send him Birthday Wishes.

The printed paper is from the new Confetti Wishes paper.  Using the Artbooking cartridge, I cut the cupcake base from our new Canary Cardstock and the layer is cut from the new glitter paper from the new Purple Glitter Paper collection.  Nearly everything on this card is new product coming August 1with the exception of the Outdoor Denim Cardstock and the cupcake from Artbooking!
