Every Day is Special But Especially Today

That's because it is my birthday !  When I sat down to make a card, I was reflecting on how fast time flies -62 years for me.  How did that happen.?  And how many wasted days, weeks, months, years have I spent?  So I was looking for a great saying and remembered this sentiment by Ippity.   I combined lots of challenges (some not even knowingly).  I used scraps, tags and eyelets that have not seen daylight for years.  The tag is removable as a bookmark. I tried vellum as first but it seemed too opaque so I used a piece of window sheeting.
