A Birthday Card


I had to share this card with all of you!  I made this for my DH's gambling - go to Vegas once a month - friend.  He is a terrible influence on my hubby (ha - just kidding) since DH goes with him every month also!  Anyway, he had his 65th birthday - is this card perfect or what!  They always stay at the Rio, so I went online found a picture of the hotel, and printed it for a background!  The inside says "Double down and Enjoy your day" - We just laughed how perfect 65 was for being 11~~  This card is probably THE BEST personalized card I have ever made!  and the up side?  I TOTALLY created the entire card!  I even impressed myself!! LOL
Thanks for stopping by -

Great card, Vicki! I have cards in my 'stash', and I just can't figure out what to do with them beyond the typical "King and Queen" sort of cards! Thanks for the inspiration, as we have gambling friends as well! I will store this fabulous idea in my feeble brain and try to remember it when I need it! Great job!!!

This is so cool, Vicki!! Being from NJ, I worked in a casino for 20 years. Can't say that I miss that but we do love going to Vegas!
The shows there are awesome.

I may have to case this card, Vicki! My SIL-to-be is a huge poker player! He just happens to have a birthday coming up. This is awesome!

He will be tickled pink to get this card, Vicki! Hey, if he wins big on his next trip it may become his lucky card :) Your hubby will be asking for one next LOL! Love the picture of the hotel in the BG and the cards in the card. Brilliantly done!

What a clever idea and card Vicki!! I immediately recognized the Rio in the background as we have stayed there before. I may have to copy your idea for Bill's birthday in May! TFS
