40th Birthday Card

I have made this card for a friends 40th Birthday. Her husband has organised a surprise party for her. It's ok she doesn't visit my blog! She's one of the "Bunco ladies" so we've had a whip round and all chipped in some money so that we can get her something nice and I said I would make the card.

I used a stamp by "My Favourite Things" it's only the second time I've used it but I do love it and I thought it would be great for a 40th card. I kept the card quite simple and embellishment free as I wasn't sure how many people are going to be signing it and so I needed to leave space on both the inside pages for people to be able to write a small message. It's not easy to write on the inside cover if there are bulky embellishments on the other side! LOL! Stamps: My Favourite Things
Papers: Hot Off the Press
Equipment: Cuttlebug ~ Quickutz Alphabet ~ Go Kreate Dies

This is cheeky -I love it! I really like the mosaic detail at the bottom -it feels like the bathroom tile -but of course you can't really see inside the bathroom, can you LOL! Clever you to think through people having to right on the inside cover of the card!
