Birthday card

Hi! Happy Wednesday!

My co worker turned 50 last week and spent the big day in Rome getting married (after 25 years of engagement). Way to go! We are celebrating him tonight and I got the honor to make the card. Since no one had any idea of the marriage thing until his return to work yesterday – with a ring on his finger! – the card is only a birthday card. (and frankly I don’t know what I’d do with a combined birthday and wedding card so I’m happy about that!) :)

Martin 50

Used some wonderful MME papers, the last full papers from this pad. Sigh. I’ll miss them! Great sketch as usual from Mojo Monday!

Thanks for stopping by!

Tesa this is just beautiful. Love how the black just makes everything pop. It would be great if you could enter this beautiful creation over at my dear friend Pam's blog. Pam and her darling husband Tony are celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary on 3 November and she is hosting a 50th challenge in honour of this great milestone. Here is the link to Pam's blog: http://pumpy-pumpys.blogspot.com/
