Birthday Card

My Son's 40th birthday was last Saturday.  He is enjoys golfing and football.  Since I couldn't find anything with Raiders on it....I decided to do a Waterfall card with golfing images.  

I used the Swiss dots cuttlebug embossing folder and had a black and white theme.  I would have used a black and silver theme.....for the Raiders colors, but didn't have any silver paper.

I found some Golf background paper at a scrapbook store and used the set FORE from TAC.  I embossed the background paper AND the white strip you attach the images to....to give it a 'golf ball' look.  Attached a black and white ribbon.....two white buttons.

Inside it says...."Happy FOREtieth Birthday"

I also made another one almost identical for one of my 'kids' that I used to babysit.  He is now in his mid 20's and going through a rough time with cancer, a rare one especially for his age.

Back to the stamp table!!!

Happy Stamping!!!
