Happy Birthday (40th)


Hi there, my sister in law asked me if I could make a male 40th birthday card for a friend of hers whose husband is turning 40 ... I said sure ... and then she begins to rattle off what her friend wanted in the card and I am frantically writing away her instructions which were the following points:
* a pink male 40th card
* family and home orientated
* include a dog with a pink bow
* they have 3 young girls and the dog is also a female ....
basically the poor guy is surrounded by females in the household who all LOVE pink - I think this guy goes to work with his head hanging down!
So here it is - I had to incorporate other colours but the family and house are all pink (and even the dog has a pink bow!)

 I made my first step card and had the family up front on the first step, the house and letterbox (with the number '40' on it!) on the 2nd step, an apple tree on the 3rd step and the back/4th step has another tree, sky and clouds.
 
It took me quite a while to make this card and I enjoyed every minute off it - alot of fussy cutting! here is a close up of the family ...
 
So I am entering this card into the challenge over at Crafty Catz - pink! and Paper Take Weekly - anything goes.
materials - Bazzill kraft, piglet card; white card; C'D dutchess; AC coffee; acetate; Cosmo Cricket 'tea for 2', Jillibean Soup 'apple cheddar soup', Teresa Collins 'spring fling' papers; Stampin Up 'all in the family' stamps, Paper Smooches 'spring grove' stamps; AnnaBelle Stamps 'party animals 1' stamps; Staz On jet black ink; Crayola pencils; MFT woodgrain fence die; Pizzazz Aplenty white pearls; pink paper cord.
Thanks for looking.
