29th Birthday

My best friend turned 29. We are rarely together on either of our birthdays and so I get great joy out of making sure what I send is exciting. This year I decided to make a card. Conveniently I had scraps of paper and card from other projects and left over red envelope from a failed previous Christmas card that was never sent. 
 


I wrote a nice message on the back, but the front appears as if it's been cut out in stencil form. But in reality they are pasted on the front of this heavy white cardstock. I agonized over the color arrangement. I think it came out well!
