Vintage Birthday!

Hello folks - sorry I've been away a while. I had not been very well over the week end, Bank holiday Monday I felt a little better, did a bit of gardening but had to admit defeat and come in as I started to feel poorly again. So I took the time to make my Husband's birthday card. It was quite a large birthday as you will see from the pics and I thought rather cheekily that I would use my 'Vintage' Vogue stamp set. I know it's very feminine and flowery but the border stamp looked very nice stamped around the edges. What do you think?
Here is a pic of the middle

And this is the card open

Now, this is the card that I thought I would enter for this week's Simply Stampin' Challenge . This week it is a colour challenge so I got out what I thought were the required colours ( Whisper White, Basic Grey, Always Artichoke and Rich Razzelberry) and made the card. Thing is I had a senior moment and instead of using Rich Razzelberry (which I don't have anyway!) I used Bravo Burgundy. I do love this challenge site so I will still enter my card and hope they don't tell me off too much!
Would you like to see a picture of the cake my Daughter made for her old Dad?

She'd covered it in yummy liquorice allsorts - his favourites.
You will be pleased to know that I was feeling much better for his party and very much enjoyed the cake and the champagne.............and the ice cream....................and the wine..............! See you soon - Jacqueline xx.


  1. Hi Jacqueline, Thank you for joining in with the Simply Stampin Challenge this week. Your card is lovely, I've used my Lovely as a Tree stamp set so much, and it goes so well with the Vintage Vogue edge stamp. Your daughters cake for her Dad looks fabulous too, hope you all had a great day. x

  2. Aha! You are a stamper after my own heart Jacqueline! Vintage Vogue looks wonderful on a male card and goes perfectly with the oak leaf from Lovely As A Tree.I'm not surprised felt better for hubby's party - that cake would've perked anyone up! Vx
