50th Birthday Card

Hello.  One of my dear old friends had her 50th birthday on Saturday and this was the card I made for her.  I actually bought this retired Stampin Up! set on Ebay several years ago, because I knew someday soon I would need it and there aren't a lot of 'red hat' stamps around!  The set is called 'Going Out in Style', and the sketch is from Mojo Monday (257).  This is actually the second time I used this sketch this month.  I just love it! You can't make a wrong card with it!.  I used a variety of red and purple patterned paper.  I stamped the image, then cut it out and popped it up on dimensionals.  I put Stickles on her necklace and ring. 

 I even decorated the inside of the card.
I haven't heard back if my friend liked her card or not.  I hope so.  I know its probably hard for her to be turning 50.  I know I'm not looking forward to it at all, but heh, growing old is better than the alternative!

Have a great day! Amy
