Nine on the Ninth - A Golden Birthday

I made a special card for our very special Grandson. He will be 9 years old next Wednesday.






Right now, one of his favorite places is Hershey Park. I used a photo we had taken from the Kissing Tower as a background. He had just rode the Comet for the first time and I think he will remember this shot. I used the transparency tool on my editing program and printed it on matte photo paper. The gold star with the 9 symbolize this significant birthday which I explained inside.
The cupcake from Tiny Treats fits perfectly inside the Around and About Sentiments Happy Birthday circle on the flap of the envelope.

Thanks for stopping by.
