Birthday card - change of style for this one!

Hi all

I was asked by a colleague to make a birthday card for her sister, I always ask what they like etc and was told "include the words "miss you lots", nothing too girly or flowery and no cute images" one tall order for me that! This is not my usual style but I quite enjoyed making it.
This is what I came up with, my colleague was really pleased with it as her sisters fave colours are red and black, phew!

and the inside...

I rarely use peel offs but as I was told she likes Champagne I had some peel offs which fit the bill. I coloured in the "champagne" and then used clear heat embossing all over the "cut out" parts.

Funny this was when I gave the card to my colleague she said it is lovely but do you kno the "happy birthday" is upside down, I thought thats impossible I am a bit dense sometmes but surely I couldn't do something like that hahaha.... well no I hadn't she was holding the card on its side (portrait)!!!!!!
