Picture Window Birthday

Hello Friends!
Lately it just seems I can't keep enough Birthday cards available in my stash.  So, I created a fun (what I call) Picture Window birthday card to share with you today.  It's also my inspiration card for the Dies R Us Inspiration blog.

The dies I have used are:
Spellbinder Nestabilities Labels 18

By simply cutting a white panel 1/8" small than my card ... die cutting my opening and popping it up with high profile pop dots I have created my Picture Window where I placed my Birthday sentiment.

I love a white on white creation but by adding a couple red sequins, I think it even more striking.
What do you think?

By using these beautiful dies, this card came together in no time at all.
Give it a try and if you want to CASE this creation, just click on the links above to go directly to their location in the Dies R Us store and place your order.  Unfortunately the SB Labels 18 is a very OLD die set and no longer carried in the store.  But, I have NO DOUBT you will find another die set that will work just as well!  
Who knows ... maybe even better!  LOL

Please be sure to join in our challenges at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There's a new theme posted on the 1st and 15th of each month and YOU could be our next lucky winner.
