Milestone birthday


You have to love it when a challenges meshes precisely with something you have to do. Case in point: Stamping for the Weekend's challenge #24 to make a card for a milestone event. Guess whose husband is about to turn 50?

I used CPS sketch 142 for this. The chipboard squares are left from another 50th-birthday card I made a few weeks ago (is there trend here?) I overstamped the chipboard with the word "celebrate" several times. The saying about "forget your age" is from SmArtWorks. The black and white paper is from Making Memories. In keeping with the "masculine" theme, I used red twine as the embellishment.
