C4C363 Sketch, a 60th Birthday Pop-Up Card

Good morning friends

It's Saturday so that means a new challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog. Our November 2016 Hostess is Maryann Einam and our Guest Designer is Doreen O'Brien from Doreen's Dream.

Maryann's has a sketch for us this week:  

Here is my card - I wanted to make a family friend a 60th Birthday card and when I saw this sheet of double sided paper I knew what I wanted to do. The sketch is on the front - I actually stayed pretty close to it!

I added the Happy Birthday from Karen Burniston's Happy Birthday Pop-Up, and the flowers & vine re from the Flower Pot Pop Stand. I put gold glitter dots in the centre of the flower for some birthday bling.

Inside is the Lorna Label Pop-Up, to which I added a die cut '60'. The numbers were also decorated with Glitter Dots.

The flowers from the Flower Pot Pop Stand is SO pretty, and comes in really handy when you want a little somethin' somethin'.

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd  love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C363

On a personal note, we are now back in Canada. We took three days so the longest stretch I had to be in the car was 12 hours. Quite long enough. When I look at the bruising I have from the IV sites and blood work as well as around all four incisions - it's easy to understand that same bruising is throughout my belly. All the jostling that comes with highway driving for hours on end took it's toll. I am SO happy to be home, and I don't plan on getting anywhere near my vehicle today. Hubby has offered to go get groceries so I can stay home. What a keeper.
