Bloggers Challenge 181 -- Birthday

Today's Bloggers Challenge comes right on time. Yesterday was my Dad's 90th birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAD! We are having a big family celebration on Sunday. I thought this was a perfect sentiment for Dad since he may be 90 in years, but in body, mind and spirit he is considerably younger.
My card is simple. The background is Shimmersheetz embossed using the numbers folder. The numbers are highlighted with blue Stazon. The sentiment is computer generated and die cut with a Spellbinders label die.

Great card, and I needed that word message this morning. Sometimes that number is just too high (smiles). All the best Barbara.
