65th Birthday Card

Morning Everyone, 

I have had a great weekend, celebrating my father in law's 65th birthday. 

So the card I am showing you, is the card I made for him.

The card is a Bookatrix style card created using white and blue as the theme. 
The edges of the book pages are edged in silver peel offs, and the center of the book is finished with a blue ribbon and bow. 
The image is a Popcorn the bear celebrations stamp set, which has been stamped with Momento ink and coloured in using promarker pens. 
The wording "Happy 65th Birthday" has been created using the Cricut Expression machine and two cartridges. 
The card was presented in a box with the word DAD on it and finished with a bow and blue ribbon (the same as what was on the card.)
To finish the card I created a stand that the card could sit on.
