Screen Door Card

Welcome Scrappers. I ordered a Screen Door Die Cut from the Simon Says Store when I won a challenge in December. This is my first time using this die cut, but I can see more possibilities for future projects. I like how my card turned out.

This is a Birthday Card for my son Benjamin who was born on February 28, 1978.  I was 10 years old when I had him - Just kidding! 

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy this first day of the New Year 2013!
