Hubby's 60th

Have you all recovered from Christmas yet? And are you all ready to welcome the New Year? It's busy enough at this time of year with all the festivities but we also have a few birthdays in our family. It is my husband's turn today. It's his 60th and this is the 'super 60' card I made for him.

I used linen card for the front and hand drew and cut out the '60' leaving a border all around. I scored a flap on the side of the linen card and attached it to an 8"x 8" card blank.

The paper behind the cut out page is from Graphic 45's Artisan Style pad and has been matted on to black card.
I printed the 'Super' and the sentiment on the computer and matted them on to black card.

The gorgeous image is from JadeDragonne (see below) and is called 1920's Flapper. I coloured her with Copics and cut her out before fixing her to the card.
I finished the card with some randomly placed pearls in red, black and gold.
We are off to Cardiff with friends for a few days to celebrate hubby's birthday and the New Year. I hope you have something nice and fun planned.
I wish you all a happy, healthy and wealthy 2016! Enjoy your celebrations everyone and I'll see you next year.
