I had an order for a card from a colleague at work for her Nephew who will be 30!! Yes! I know, not only is it a card for a MAN!! but she also said 'Oh i'll leave it up to you' when i asked what she would like on the card!!! So... this is what i came up with, i just hope she likes it!!
I've used the great sketch by Kimmie over at Friday Sketchers to create the layout for my design, i really like this sketch, and may well be using it again for another card. :)

This Penny Black image is called 'Too Many Candles'. i don't think you can ever have too many candles or cake on your Birthday!! :) I've stamped him in Timber Brown Stazon and coloured in using Distress & Adirondack inks and a water brush. The papers are all Basic Grey from the 6 x 6 'Archaic' pad with some Bazzill black as well. The sentiment is from a HOTP acrylic set and i added some liquid applique to the top of the cake to look like fluffy icing! The chipboard numbers are from a Donna Downey kit, with some screw top brads to finish. I ran a couple of the panels through my Cuttlebug swiss dots folder to add some texture.

Let's just hope this guy doesn't have a Frog phobia!!! See you soon :)
