Birthdays Galore continued

Pheweeee how hot has it been this week, between watching Wimbledon and the heat no projects completed for me my hands were so hot I was leaving marks on the card - not a look I wanted lol ;-( Moving quickly on;
This morning was a lot cooler so I got cracking. I am still on my quest; Birthday cards just a Little bit different from the norm; I have several 60th Birthdays coming up (not Me!) so I have used this weeks sketch challenge over on StampwithUs for one of the 60th Birthday cards and made the opening gatefold, added a bit of bling (dazzling diamonds) and have kept to just two colours. Hope you like my take on this weeks sketch. I have used Certainly Celery for a clean fresh look. Stazon was used to stamp Happy Birthday onto the ribbon and I frayed two ends, 60 was cut from DSP on my Big Shot and I glued this to heavy card mounted with dimensionals.
