For a very special old mummy
In about 2 hours it's my boyfriend's birthday. A very special one as well, as he'll turn 30 this year (me as well, but I'll always be the younger and more beautiful one, even if it's just by 6 months *evil grin*). This occasion screams for a especially gentle and loving card. Some of you might already know it's a hard transition from being a twen to becoming 30... all grown up, all mature and responsible and damn, why don't I feel like any of this! ROFL
You might think this card looks familiar. That is probably due to Mummy Edwin. I think he is THE perfect stamp for any man turning 30, 40, 50, you name it and I already used him once last September, when my best friend went through the same transition.
A couple more pictures, this time with the present he'll get. I stamped Mummy Edwin on the brown packing paper using Memento Rich Cocoa and used real bandages as a ribbon.
Closed it looks ordinary and harmless enough, doesn't it?
Of course I am going to submit this card to several challenges. The main one is Simon Says, because I chose the colour theme according to the challenge and I am trying again to become part of this fab DT. Perhaps I'll luck out this time ^__^
Okay, here we go:
Simon Says Stamp - Coffee & Cream
Stampin for the Weekend - Monochrome (I hope this counts as monochrome as I went from cream to dark brown, but it's still all brown, so...)
Stempeleinmaleins - The Sketch (Sorry, I don't own any Penny Black stamsp anymore, so I couldn't go for the extra challenge this time)
Stamptacular Sunday - S.O.S SomeOne Special (for the man who's shared my life for the last 10+ years)
Stamp With Fun - Recipe (3 papers, 3 flowers, 1 ribbon)
All That Scraps Monthly Magnolia Challenge - Let's Celebrate Birthdays (because 2 entries are allowed ^___^ and her tutorial actually reminded me that I wanted to do a twised easel card for some time and never did)
Magnolia Down Under - Flower Power (this was total coincidence though and not a planned entry)
