Another Silver Birthday

Made another silver and gray birthday card with the leftover die cut sentiment not used on the card I made a couple days ago...
Made the leaves with a Paper Smooches die and the inner lid to a peanut can!  I live in peanut country...and of late, my daughter and I have become nuts about peanuts!  We drive an hour away to Wakefield Va and Plantation Peanuts,  to get THE BEST PEANUTS IN THE WORLD!!  And we buy several big tins with each visit...I know...CRAZY!!  The inner lid is embossed silver, and I thought it would be great to recycle and die cut with it...
Thus, the leaves...
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
