Birthday Humor

A friend's husband is celebrating his 70th birthday on New Year's Day. I think that deserves a very special card but still wanted to keep it light.
So in the tradition of making fun of aging, I decided to go with the black theme, complete with the black balloon boquet. The stripes are from a couple of different SU sets. The other images are all from Newton's Nook. I love this Winston stamp. With the addition of googly eyes he looks so puzzled and saying "how did I get to this stage already?" The strip of paper on the side is a b/w patterned vellum from SU over a strip of black.
The inside sentiment is done via computer.
Linking up to Tuesday Morning Sketches anything goes challenge.


  1. Love this card, Donna. Your sentiment is awesome! I think I need to write this one down and use it on a card sometime. Hope you have a wonderful hoiday.
