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.

Very elegant design Kath, great texture from the EF and the gold embossed mirri card is annoying when you can't get a satisfactory photo! The inside is great too...I'm glad you told us about the 'than yesterday'...I was beginning to worry about you :)))
Have a lovely weekend
