A Two Challenge Card

Maybe some of you can relate.  I don't really feel my age until my eldest's birthday comes around.  Then I feel darned old.  I mean, how can I be old enough to be his mother when in my mind I'm still his age?  *sigh*

Today is my son's 37th birthday and I made this card with him (and two challenges *blush*) in mind.

I wanted to come up with something really clean and simple that wasn't overly girly.  Green is is favorite color so I pulled out some cardstock scraps and put on my thinking cap to come up with something that would fit the shapes theme.  Here's the result....

It meets the "shapes" requirement as well as the white space/birthday requirement.  I thought the sentiment was appropriate for how I'm feeling today.  ('cause in the end, it's still all about me.  ROFL!)

I cut the rectangles out with my paper trimmer, added the stitched stamp line and sentiment and called it good. 

Happy Birthday to my first born!
