Go Wild With A Birthday Card For My Granddaughter

I was playing along with the categories from Craft Roulette which were:
Project: Gift Card
Colors Coffee Shop
Element: Go Wild
Random: Add a number(s)

I then thought these categories, plus a new die set I purchased were perfect for my granddaughter's birthday card.  I added a die cut with the sentiment "Happy Birthday" on the back of the card and I did put a gift card in and mailed it off to her.   I think she will find it fun and especially nice for the holidays.

I took three photos and made a collage to show all the elements.
