Allsorts challenge week 435 - Sentiment in Focus

This is a scheduled post, so fingers crossed.

Good Morning it's week 435 at Allsorts and our lovely Helene has chosen the theme of 
Sentiment in Focus.

Our sponsor this week is
Digi Stamp Boutique.

and we also have this prize from Tattered Lace

Here is my card

This was the image that I posted on the Allsorts blog because the actual front of the card which I intended for the challenge was the one below.

But with it being die cut from gold mirri card could I get a decent photo, NO I could not!
Also the backing of the EF was gold mirri card but somehow managed to look silver on the photo.

As this is quite a personal card for a good male friend of ours who will be 50 in December.
I have shown the card before adding more personal details to it.

One of them is pretty simple really after the wording "you don't look a day older" I will put
"than Yesterday"
It is a front opening card.
EF is Simple stripes
The gold mirri image is a Cuttlebug die, and a very old one too. By the way it says Happy Birthday, in case you can't read it from the poor photo.

The cake stamp and sentiment is Woodware.
Thank you so much for taking the time to pop by and I hope that you will also pop over to the challenge blog to see the lovely cards made by the rest of the team.

Well it is time for another Rudolph Day over at Scrappy Mo's.

Once again I have used images from the LOTV art pad.

The papers are from last years Sara Davies Contemporary Christmas paper pad.
Fitted the image perfectly as they are blue with a touch of pink and so are the images.
Sentiment is die cut from blue mirri card.

Thanks for popping by.
