50th Birthday Cards







I was asked by my work to make a 50th Birthday card for the Doctor who owns the practice. This I had trouble with, kind of lost my "mojo". The card with the jumbo eyelets was my first attempt. I wasn't really happy with it so I got this week's Inkspirations Challenge up on my laptop and decided I could do something with that. The first card in this post is what I ended up being happy with. I've used "Sense of Time", "Teeny Tiny Sentiments" and "Bring on the Cake" stamps sets and a push bike stamp I have in my stash (the doctor is a keen cyclist). The SU Colour Coach helped me with the colour combination, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake and Riding Hood Red. I made the inside of the card pop up with the "Sense of Time" clock. I'm now going to up load this card to the Inkspirations Challenge for this week.
