I thought I'd share a card that was requested by a friend for her husband's special birthday.

They run a pub and she was thrilled with this personalized creation. 

I'm not a great lover of decoupage, I really don't like lots of layers and foam pads but the images on this sheet were so perfect, nothing else would do.
I decided to just shape each layer slightly and add only a thin squeeze of Pinflair gel instead.

Some numbers cut on the Cricut, ribbling and embossing,

paper piercing and twine along with my favorite, hand cut bunting complete the card.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Fab n Funky 158, It's on the inside,
SOS89, Birthday,
TTCRD, Anything goes,
TT134, Anything goes,
CWLC28, Birthday,die cuts, embossing,
MIM127, Anything goes,
TCC138, Birthday.

Thanks for stopping by,

Fabulous card Julie - perfect for a man's 50th card. Truly believe 1963 must have been a baby boom - there are so many 50ths at the moment....including John's my husband !!! Hugs xx

This is really pretty and such a great design for a man! I like how you've added both his name and his age - it makes the card so much more personal. The colors work so well with the theme of wine too.
