Birthday Card ~ Happy 50th

Here is the birthday card I made for my faux-brother.
He has been a friend of my sisters for years and he was there for us BIG TIME when we were caring for our Mom while she was fighting cancer.
I appreciate all of his love, tenderness and support. He is the best.
I made his card a multipurpose card.
Part card, part note holder and part picture frame so he can add a special picture from tonight's party if he wants.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Card front 5.25 x 4 in. using design paper from the Recollections Black & White 8.5 x 11.5 in. pad.
*Happy & Birthday sentiments from (unknown).
*50 cut using the Cuttlebug Olivia alphabet dies.
*Presents & balloon from a Cuttlebug 3 x 3 party die.
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad.
*Foam tape to add dimension.
May your day always be filled with love.

  6. Great card, I love multifunction creations.

    I need to get busy and enter some of the challanges, I just can't seem to find any that pertain to anything that I need to make. I need to get over that idea and just make a few things, my craft waiting room can hold a few more items.
