The Big 50!

Its my wonderful husbands 50th birthday this weekend. We have a big party coming up to celebrate and lots of surprises for him so can't wait. His birthday started early last night with a very special meal at our best friends and a gift of the most special bottle of courvoisier brandy in a wonderful presentation casket. He was thrilled - big thanks to Ted and Helen, very much appreciated xxx
Here's the card I've made him. He loves golf so it just had to be golf themed.
This wonderdful digi is from http://annescards4u.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/freebie. She has lots of free digis - thanks so much.
I coloured it with copics and used a Sizzix oval die.
I still find man cards hard, I seem to have little inspiration. Decided on a different shape for a special birthday. The grass is a die from Poppystamps  called grassland border. I stamped the sentiment using a Just Rite stamp. I'm sure he will love it. Just need our daughter to get home from university tonight and let the celebrations begin xxxx
