Simon's birthday

OMG!!  Today is my son's 45th birthday - where has all that time gone??
(Have I mentioned before that I was a child bride??)
Here is the card that I made for him - very CAS - nothing fussy,
hope that the colours are not too feminine.

The background is from the Moonlight Designer Series Pack
the colour combo is Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Smoky Slate and White.
The ribbon is Blackberry Bliss 3/8" Stitched Satin ribbon
the frame is a  Fun Frames Textured Impressions embossing folder,
 which is fussy cut out after embossing and the white card is then stamped on with the greeting 
( from Four You) and cut to fit the frame.
The Son stamp is from a retired set - "For my family" 
- but it is so useful that I won't part with this!
I am quite pleased with this.
