Tape measure

I expect you are wondering what I mean by tape measure?, no I am not doing DIY, no I am not measuring my height in case I have shrunk in old age, no I am definitely NOT measuring my waist, it would be too much of a shock to see the numbers go from 24 inches, that was my 19 year old size, to ??  Can you blame me?

Anyhow, as you have guessed it's about a card, No, you shout, not a card? LOL  Here it is, quote / sentiment from Squigglefly.  (corrected supplier - sorry)

The tape measure image, I'm afraid I can't remember where I got it from, no saving hints either! I used PS to extend the tape to 3.5 inches, and paper piece papers into the shape. I used an overlay from Shabby Princess to frame the front and inside, the shopper is by Shari Warren.  I used a gradient on the words to match the paper.  In case you can't read it, the inside says "and it doesn't matter if the card is Visa or Mastercard!  Happy Birthday Girlfriend.  An all Digi card, which I hope doesn't stop me entering into the challenges.

I will enter the following challenges  My Sentiments Eaxctly!      Anything Goes           Sketch or theme Paper piecing  Again I am a couple of hours over, hope this is OK.

I know my card is very CAS, but thought I'd enter these challenges as my card fit's the bill, so to speak.
