CASual Birthday

One of my best friends turns 40 tomorrow and as such this suitably sparkling number is currently winging its way down south courtesy of the Royal Mail....

I followed a similar theme to my 18th card but went for a more "Dioresque" quilted background rather than stamped facebook sentiments ;-)  Simple tools - just the cameo, tweezers and pinflair glue for all those lovely shimmering sequins.   Teal and gold - very classy - here's hoping that she gets a classy day out to go with it (her husband is taking her on a magical mystery tour and won't tell us where!)  

I'm entereing this into this week's CASual Friday challenge which is a birthday project
