Star Trek Birthday Card

I was commissioned to make a birthday card for a friend's husband who is a Trekkie, and since his birthday is next weekend, I figured I'd better get the card made.

Since I can't stamp (more on that later), I had to rely on my computer and printer to Make It So. I decided on a Stampin' Up! Basic Black card base of 5-1/4" square, and layered the picture of the crew as well as the sentiment and inside saying on the colors Ruby Red, Certainly Celery, and Brocade Blue. I used the same colors to jazz up the envelope.








In case the birthday guy stops by to visit his card on my blog: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CALVIN!

Personal update:
I've spent most of the weekend in bed, partly dealing with emotional stuff, but more so because my gout is acting up -- and of all the places, in my right elbow! I tried to stamp, but I can't put any pressure on that joint. And stamping with my left hand was a disaster, lol! I have to use my left to eat because my right elbow won't bend far enough, and I have to blow my nose with one hand. My computer time is limited because when I sit at my desk I tend to lean on that arm. Sheesh! Remind me never to take my right elbow for granted again!
