celebrate! by eatzycath
celebrate!, a photo by eatzycath on Flickr.

A card made for my hubby's cousin Anthony who recently celebrated his 70th birthday - a cheery card that reflects his enjoyment of life and its epicurious pleasures!

I still used blue for this 'guy' card but now in smaller swatches, with the bulk of the background in purple patterned paper. I am trying to move away from standard blue and grey colors for 'guy' cards - surely they too need some bright colors to light up their life!

The stamps are from Art Impressions - the Cafe stamp and Monique, the dancing waitress stamp. The centrepiece on which the Cafe was stamped is a die-cut from Memory Box (the Debutante frame) and it is further edged with a check-print die-cut also from MemoryBox (the Under the Sea frame). Coloring was done using Caran D'ache Neocolor II water-soluble color wax pastels.
