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.

Those doodled backgrounds are lovely. I hadn't really looked at that stamp set before, you've made me go back and take another look. Sara xx

I like this very much, Maggie. I have heard that you are having unseasonally hot weather there at the moment, so I hope that you can cool down enough to continue creating.
