Happy 40th Birthday Shawn

Hi - It is our oldest son's Birthday on January 19 and I can't believe he will be 40!
How in the world did that happen????
I am still not sure how to make 'men', grown up cards with my Magnolia's but I have tried once again to do so with dear 'Bartender Edwin' #124. I thought to 'Celebrate' this special occasion I would use this stamp. All my stamps are bought from Diana - please click on her link in the upper right hand corner to order.

As you see it is a rather plain card. I have used Bazzil Basics in brown for the card stock and Basic Grey's 'Origins Collection Pack' for the DP. I stamped Edwin with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Prism card stock and coloured him with Copics. I cut him with my Coluzzel second largest oval and then the Bazzil again with the largest one. I added some yellow baubles and also used Crystal Lacquer on the glasses. I coloured his belt buckle and the tray with my Silver and Gold Atyou Spica pens which I also purchased from Diana.

On the inside left of the card I simply used the same DP to which I added a strip of the Bazzil. Because I was able to buy a package of Basic Grey this time - which included letters - I used the co-ordinating colours to spell 'Happy 40th'.

The inside right side is a simple cut of the Coluzzle again in the same two sizes and a sentiment from 'My Favourite Things'. I also stamped, coloured and cut out the 'Wine bucket #1404, from Diana. I put Crystal Lacquer onto the bottles here also, as well as more Silver Atyou Pen onto the bucket. I attached this image with pop dots.

Here are the Copics I used:

Sorry I see the light was shining on one of the markers - that one is R30.
I would like to wish my wonderful, thoughtful, hardworking, great father, wonderful husband of a son; a Marvelous Happy Fortieth Birthday :o)
Hope to see you soon with a pretty card. I am looking at all of your GREAT BLOGS and most beautiful work and am quite unsure I can make anything quite so pretty but sure want to try.....
