60th Birthday

Good Evening,

Hope you are all having a good week and managing to stay dry wherever you are.  Here in Inverness our weather hasn't been bad at all (I'm sure I'll come to regret saying that!) but you don't have to go very far south to hit the snow.  The flooding further south has been horrendous and my heart goes out to everyone involved.

Tonight's card is one I made earlier in the week and was a commission for a work colleague to give her husband.  The brief was for Inverness Caledonian Thistle FC colours! I do hope she was happy with the end result.

I didn't have a lot of time so I decided to base the design on a 30th card I'd made for a friend.  I did however have a new chevron embossing folder from Crafter's Companion to play with so I used that with some white pearlised card for the background.  The large Star-edged mat is made using a Tonic die and the blue and red stars are cut using X-cut nesting dies.  The 60 and glitter stars are ready made and were purchased from Hobbycraft.  I've used the same card on the inside as a mount for the sentiment which was computer generated and die cut using another X-cut die.

That's all from me for tonight, I'm soooooo tired, glad it's Friday tomorrow!
