Matt's 50th

Hi and thanks for visiting "the charmed life blog". I am excited to finally have this blog up and running. It was one of my goals this year and I completed it before year-end. That's definitely a whoo-hoo!!

Well, that brings me to my posting for today. My stampin-up demo, Christine, told me that her husband was celebrating his 50th birthday this week-end. They are such a sweet couple. She has a family party planned for him on Saturday.

I was shocked. He doesn't look any where near 50. Whatever that looks like!!

I wanted to send him a card and we all know how difficult those masculine cards can be. No fuss and no frills.

I was trying to convey on this card my surprise at his age. Hence the whoooo knew sentiment and the banner announcing his age. I love this cute little owl. It's from the stampin-up bright delights rub-ons.
The layout on my card is from mercy kerin's tuesday sketch challenge.
I used stampin-up blue bayou card stock and designer paper. My white cardstock is from gina k.
The horizontal panels are popped up on dimesnionals for depth. This is my first attempt at making a banner. I used dimensional on this as well and rolled it around a pen before adding it to my card.
Thanks for dropping by. If you like what you have seen so far on my blog, why not get updates automatically? Every time I post it will be sent to your email address.

paper: stampin up blue bayou cs and dsp, gina k white
