Noah's Card

Our nephew Noah is turning four this week and I made him this card and matching envelope.  I really like the way it turned out.  Those banner pieces were a thrift store find....they are sewing notions meant to be iron-on appliques to the collar of  western styled shirt.  They look to be from the 70's-80's judging by the vintage looking packaging.  I got them for a quarter and knew they would look awesome on a card for Noah.  I was really lucky to find the cowboy themed papers in my stash, the kraft cardstock for the base is Recollections, the "happy birthday" stamp is from Stampin' Up and I printed "Pardner" on my computer.  I also made a matching envelope from kraft cardstock and just followed the instructions that came with my Martha Stewart scoring board.
