My son-in-law turns 40 in a couple of weeks. YIKES!!
I thought he needed a card teasing him about getting older.
 I am playing with 2 challenges with this one.
The Play Date Café with colors of cappuccino, slate, burlap
Tuesday Morning Sketches

I don't drink cappuccino, but I am assuming the color is kind of like Kraft cardstock so that is what I used for the base. I took the burlap literally with the strip across. It was white so I dabbed on brown and tea dye inks to age it (pun unintended) a bit.  The candle stamp is from Stampendous and lined up on slate paper. The sentiment is from SU. I fastened the banner with 2 gold brads and colored the candle flames with gold star gel pen.
