Rockin' the Birthday Card for Grandpa!

Yesterday Thomas mentioned that his Dad's birthday was next week. And could I 'whip up a card to send him?' What???? OK, well...wow...not a lot of time to make something and get it there in time!!!! Ugh! Every year I swear I'm going to get a birthday/anniversary calendar going and I never do. Still haven't, lol! But I tore apart my craft room today to find the perfect idea, and then the perfect papers to make Grandpa a special birthday card.

I decided to go with a nautical theme:

But the real surprise is on the inside!:
Pop-Up Birthday Cake MAGIC!!!
Recipe:
Stamps: Word Play, Perfectly Penned
Paper: Midnight Muse, Whisper White, Nautical Expedition DSP
Ink: Midnight Muse
Accessories: Sizzix birthday cake pop-up die, white doily, 1 3/4" circle punch, circle coluzzle, sticky strip, metal eyelets, bakers twine, Fleur De Lis square Spellbinder die, Martha Stewart glitter, photo corner punch, Oh, Whale clearlit (anchor)

I hope it gets there in time and that he will like it!!!
