Happy 40th Sar!

This is a "card" I made for my Sister, Sarah's 40th which is on 16th June 2012.
She asked me if I thought she LOOKED 40 the other day, how do you answer that one diplomatically?!

I cut the shaped pieces of the card on my Silhouette Cameo (TM) using a template that was very kindly put to the UKScrappers (TM) web site by 2magpies.  Thank you so much Joyce, I just hope I have done your template justice.
The link to the template is:

I then decided to go with a red, white and blue theme, the time just seemed right!!
The back of the card was finished with some DO CRAFTS (TM) Papermania "Portobello Road" paper that was a free gift with this month's issue of "Creativity" magazine.  I adjusted the size using a photo editing software as I wanted a width of 5" and not A4.
The swrily bunting stamps are from a set by Anna Griffin (TM).
I finished the inside of the shape off with some Rub on's from my stash and also some gems and ribbon keeping the red, white and blue theme.

I just hope Sarah will like it!
