60th Birthday card

Well, you know you've made it in the card making world when your boss asks you to make a card for his secretary's 60th birthday! I've been lacking inspiration this last two weeks or so due to having a mega bad cold and sinus infection. I've also been working on mass producing my wedding invitations (which I'm starting to think I should have made simpler!) so with all that I haven't done much crafting.

I used this week's Sketch Saturday sketch and took inspiration for the colour combo from last year's IB&C and Julie's blog

...and this is what I came up with

I'm actually quite pleased with the way it came out, I just hope my boss is as well!

Cardstock: Kraft, not quite navy, whisper white
DSP: Fall Flowers
Ribbon: Very Vanilla, linin thread
Ink: Not quite navy, soft suede, old olive, black staz-on
Stamps: Sincere Salutations, Blooming with beauty, Sanded background
Button & brads: Not quite navy
Punches: oval, scallop oval, 1" circle, 3/4" circle, 1/2" circle, eyelet border
Other: numer dies & die cutting machine, dimensionals, glue dots, sticky strip, glue, aqua painters, sponge, paper piercing tool

Thanks for stopping by!
