Happy Bird-Day vintage look birthday card

Sizzix For the Record stamp and die set Happy Bird-Day card, by Paperesse.

I bought this Sizzix For the Record stamp and matching die set a few months back and decided it was time to actually use it. I'm so used to digital it feels weird to actually ink-up rubber.

It's in the same genre as the Sizzix French Flight set I used on this Paris birthday card and thank you card and like the Paris birthday card, I used the same paper from the retired Authentique Latest & Greatest paper pad.

I didn't go all old school though – the sentiment is a digital one from Barbara Anne Williams Punny Animal Sentiments One printable sentiments sheet.
