365 Cards Day 60 & Sketches! by Tamara # 92

Day 60 over at 365 Cards and I am trying so hard to keep up with the challenges each day. Today has not been so easy as I'm coming down with a cold and have spent a lot of it asleep. That's teach me to get soaking wet on a hospital visit last week...... Hey at least it's not swine flu, that is quite scary isn't it as it's spreading all over the world.

Anyways, the challenge today is to use the word 'WHAT' as the sentiment for your card.

I needed to make a card for a 40th birthday so this was quite timely. I used his weeks sketch #92 over at Sketches! by Tamara for the layout.

The spotty & striped papers are from the Sweet Nothings paper pack by Papermania. All other papers are scraps. I used my Martha Stewart punch for the central layers as I though it would look like a frilly edge on a cake. I added some flower sequins and gems as the decoration at the bottom of the cake. Finally the lettering is some self adhesive felted ones I got from Poundland some time ago and the number was written by hand.

Thanks 365 for getting me so organised with my card making!!

P.S. I think that the citrus fruit paper is one of the most difficult papers to use and look at what you did with that one on the fruity challenge!
