Woohoo! A party!

Today I want to share a card I made for one of my husband's friends who's birthday party we went to last weekend! Yes! I actually went out to a party - I haven't been out for a long, long time so it was great to get out and doll myself up! LOL he is a police dog handler so I thought it would be so funny to use this image by Mo Manning!! I think it is just hysterical given his job! He loved it so it was obviously a good choice! The papers are by MME.

I coloured the image with copics and have sewn around the image mat as well as the main backing paper.

The numbers are from a Tim Holtz grungeboard set and I covered them with silver leaf.

I used an EK success punch along the edge of the notebook style paper and added a file tab with a spellbinders die. I drew an arrow from "Age" to the silver 50 LOL!

The ribbon is some paper ribbon from my stash which I've stapled to the card and I added some pearls by Hero Arts.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
