50 Years Young

Hi folks,

So the big bloke turns the big 50 later this year and since he's been away for the last few days I thought I'd get his card done so he doesn't actually see it. The poor love keeps insisting he's turned 47 for the last 3 years but I think this little card makes it very clear that he isn't turning 47 again!

This week's Freshly Made Sketch was a great starting point, although I did miss out the element on the circle.  The background panel has been stamped with MFT's Wood Plank and and the striped panel is by WMS. I stamped the circles with a set by Winnie and Walter. 

I've also used the colours and lots of elements from The Card Concept's inspiration pic - the plates with the red and blue borders gave me the idea to use the W & W set, the silver forks influenced the pewter embossed numbers and the red and navy striped panel came from the napkins on the table.  So much to draw from in that pic!  I think I would class this one as clean and graphic!

Happy stamping!
