Seahorse Pop Up Card

Hello friends ~ I had a special request from a friend of mine to make a birthday card for someone who was turning 98 years old and this person loved the ocean. 
Here's a list of what she wanted:
*the number 98
*ocean theme
*inside birthday sentiment to pop up

 So with that criteria in mind I went to work and came up with this pop up birthday card.  

I used Elizabeth Craft Design Seahorse, Seaweed and Shells to make this card.  The pop up sentiment on the inside is from MFT's Pop Up's Birthday.

I enjoyed making this card so much that I made another one in almost the exact design to send to my dear friend Marcia to thank her for being such a sweet friend.

I used the Simon Says Stamp On Edge, Thank You Die on the inside of this card.

I'll be adding one of these cards to the following challenges:
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge ~ Create A Scene
Dies R Us Challenge Blog ~ Water &/or Beach
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
Simon Says Monday Challenge ~ Nautical / By The Sea

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit
