Celebrations

Two reasons to celebrate in our house this week - first was Neil's birthday on Monday which we actually celebrated on Sunday when we managed to have all 3 kids + boyfriend and girlfriend over for a meal and cake - a lot of fun, and today is our 20th anniversary. We are going into Edinburgh to see some exhibitions and plan to go to the Palace of Holyrood at the foot of the Royal Mile, I've lived in Edinburgh since I was 17 years old (not telling how many years!) but have never been in the Palace before!

Before I go off and get ready to go I just wanted to share the card I made for Neil's birthday. It is a bit different from the cards I usually show on my blog but I really like it so would love to hear what you think :o)

I used my new Stampin Up Bird on a Branch punch, papers from K&Co and some felt flowers I picked up in Hobbycraft.

The card fits the following challenges:
Cards for Men - Outdoors
Crazy Challenge - Something New (my punch)
Allsorts - Birthday
Papertake - Say it with Flowers
