"Happy Birthday" card...

Happy Thursday everyone... one day nearer Friday - woohoo!

I am really loving watching the Olympics when I get home from work each day. I watched the Men's gymnastics last night and hoped and willed our two GB guys to get medals, but sadly that wasn't to be, but they did so well, And then Michael Jamieson got Silver in the 200m breastroke - WOW!! What a great day for Team GB winning medals... Gold medal for the women's rowing, Bradley Wiggins Gold medal in the cycling timed trials.

Anyway, enough waffling, here is today's card:
I saw a card in the current main Stampin' Up! catalogue, page 86, and thought I would give it a go.... I tweaked it slightly to my style, and I am pleased with how it turned out, and my friend who I made it for loved it too - phew!
Here is a close up of the embossed section, it just lifts the card and gives it depth.
I love the Curly Cute stamp set, and it is one of my "go to" stamps....
