Life's A Breeze - 40th Birthday Card.

Hi all,

Recently been asked to make a 40th birthday card for someone who likes sailing, not too feminine and the colour lime green! At first, I didn't think I had any appropriate stamps, let alone be able to make this card! After a little searching for inspiration online, I realised I had a boat stamp after all from one of my many Stampin' Up! stamp sets - lol. Here's the card I created using a much neglected stamp set of mine called Life's A Breeze.

Life's A Breeze

Stamps: Life's A Breeze, Just Perfect Alphabet, Schoolbook Serif Numbers and Whimsy Wheel.
Cardstock: Gable Green, Old Olive, Bashful Blue, Real Red and Whisper White.
Bashful Blue, Gable Green and Brocade Blue.
Accessories: 1-3/4" Circle Punch, 1-1/4" Circle Punch, 1" Circle Punch, 3/4" Circle Punch, 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon - Brocade Blue, Linen Thread, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, Bone Folder and Dimensionals.
Card Size:

Hope you like this card. Thanks for stopping by.

Bye for now,
